Reset CrossOver's installer cache

If an installer file was corrupted during the download (which can happen due to network errors, problems with download servers, or even anti-virus software on your computer), CrossOver will continue to use that corrupted file until you remove the installer cache and try another install of the given package/application.

The absolute file path of the installer cache is as follows:


or, for games:


You can remove the installer cache with the following command in terminal:

$ rm -rf ~/.cxoffice/installers

If you're using a graphical file manager to find and delete this file, remember that "~/.cxoffice" is a hidden direcotry, so you'll need to reveal hidden directories with ctrl + H'' (on GNOME) or ''alt + . (on KDE)
