I am running Big Sur 11.1 on a new MacBook Air. Previously I used Parallels to run WordPerfect, but it doesn't yet work on the M1 and I found CrossOver. I have used WordPerfect for 20 years and it is far superior (and easier) to Word for legal briefs. I cannot get any flavor of WordPerfect to install. I have tried 2020, X9 and X8. and they all stall during the installation. I have also tried to install into a Kitchen Sink Dependencies Archive and Windows 10 64 bit dependencies Archive. I really like the idea of CrossOver, and WordPerfect does not come in a Mac version for reasons unknown. I have seen old posts that X3 was working for someone, but that version is long gone. Can someone please help me to troubleshoot and install WordPerfect so that I can use my otherwise very impressive M1?
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
