Ubuntu Software center incorrectly reports that Crossover Pro is a Trial

The Crossover Pro 10.x trial is available for download via the Ubuntu Software Center on Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10. However, since *only* the trial is available via this method, the Software Center "thinks" all installations of Crossover Pro are trials, even if you installed a fully licensed version from your My Accounts>My Downloads section, or successfully registered your demo.

To check and see if your installed copy of Crossover is fully registered, go to Crossover's "Register and Unlock this Demo" menu item, or run the following command in terminal:


If Crossover prompts you for your email and password, it is not fully registered. Enter your email and password to fully register the installed copy. Otherwise, it will report that your copy is fully registered:

Alternately, you can download pre-registered copies of Crossover Pro (and Standard) from your My Account>My Downloads page on our website:


And then install that file using the Ubuntu Software center:

You can also use "dpkg" in terminal, if you are more familiar with terminal commands.

Please note that if you've installed Crossover from the .bin ("generic") installer, it will not register in the Ubuntu Software center, at all. This doesn't affect Crossover's functionality, but if you search for "Crossover" under Installed Applications inside the Ubuntu Software Center you will not find it listed.
