Steam, Mac and Wolfenstein: New Order

Hello everyone,

I'm new to Crossover and such but I want to play Wolfenstein: the New Order using Steam. I installed Steam using the Crossover trial and downloaded the whole 40+ gig of WFTNO.

When starting the game however, it says: Missing executable.

Is this because the game isn't supported by Crossover or is it me doing something wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Wolfenstein: New Order is a 64bit only application. CrossOver creates 32bit environments, so the game won't work. Here's a quote from Vincent Povirk (wine dev and Codeweavers employee) when the topic about supporting 64bit applications came up in the advocate forums:

Posted:

On Mac, the 64-bit ABI is simply incompatible with Windows, and to the best of our knowledge this is impossible to resolve without the use of emulation or virtualization.
