I am using the latest version of Crossover on my MAC OSX 10.14.5

And i cannot seem to generate an icon to put on the OSX desktop to enable easy application starts etc...

Any help would be appreciated

I have paid for support but they never seem to respond not very encouraging i am afraid.

Run command - select the exe you want - save command as launcher.
Now exe icon should be in main CrossOver bottle window.
Right click icon - show original - and from that original you can make and place shortcut anywhere you want, desktop, dock etc.

If save as launcher command doesn't work, rebuild bottle applications and you should have all of the apps icons.

Great thanks, the Show Original instruction was the key.
