Running a windows app from terminal in Mac is more complicated than on Linux because a series of environment variables must be passed to the terminal before the app can be successfully launched. For this reason, Crossover's has an "Open Shell" button, which you'll find referenced in the following link : https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/mac/faq/maccmdprompt.
After selecting the appropriate bottle containing your applications, right clicking ( Ctrl+ click ) on the Bottle, then holding down the 'Option' key will switch 'Run Command' to "Open Shell". Click on 'Open Shell' will open a terminal that automatically sets the necessary environment variables, including a directory change into the "drive_c" of that bottle.
From here, you can run windows apps with the following command:
wine --cx-app executable.exe
Whereas executable.exe is the name of the .exe file that launches the program. Thus, if you're in an Office 2007 bottle and you want to launch Word from terminal, you'd use
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.
