quick question

can i an application from crossover to another PC ( a windows one)?

I guess you meant to ask if you can transfer files from a CrossOver instance to a Windows PC and still be able to use the application installed in it. First of all, always install your applications, don't just transfer the files. That being said, if the application is installed in both (the CrossOver instance and the Windows PC), it depends. Some applications will just crash if you mess with the internal files, but it's a matter of trying.

Maybe this? Look

You can absolutely give it a go. It may just work, it may not. You could simply copy it to the C drive of a new bottle or to say somewhere on your main hard drive and run the application exe file via the 'Run Command' function. Sergio mentioned above it's better to install the application, which is definitely correct as there may be things missing by simply running the exe such as registry entries and the like. Best to give it a try and if it doesn't work troubleshoot any error messages you run into.
