CrossOver Support

Gathering debug logs in Crossover Linux


If our support staff is helping you to investigate a problem, they may ask that you gather a log file. To do so, go to Crossover's main menu, highlight the bottle containing the program in question, and then click "Run Command":



Now click "Browse" and navigate to where your executable is located.



Check the "Create a log file" box, and then and add any channels that are needed (our staff will have told you which options to select)



Click "Run", and then choose a location to save the log file. It's probably easiest to save the log to your desktop.



Click on "save", and Crossover will launch your program while running the log. When you're finished, close the program, and close the Run Command dialogue.



Alternately you can enable Crossover's logging from command line. Below is an example of how to enter the logging commands.

$ CX_LOG=~/cxlog.txt CX_DEBUGMSG=+seh,+tid /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine --bottle "bottlename" --cx-app launcher.exe

CX_LOG= identifies the location of the log file to be created.

CX_DEBUGMSG= identifies extra log channels (leave this out for a "basic" log)

/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine presumes that you installed Crossover from a package install. If you used the .bin file as user, that command would read ~/cxoffice/bin/wine

"bottlename" identifies the specific name of the bottle

launcher.exe identifies the specific name of the .exe file that launches the program
