Backtrace shows 'read fault 0x00000' on Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
This page no longer applies to current versions of CrossOver
Mac 10.6 has secure virtual memory enabled by default and that can cause Wine (the core of Crossover) to be unable to read memory addresses it needs. This can cause all sorts of unexpected crashes and hangs that aren't generated on Mac 10.7-10.8. On Mac 10.7 & 10.8 securing virtual memory has been replaced by the Gatekeeper system.
To fix open System Preferences, Security pref pane, General tab, and uncheck Secure Virtual Memory and restart your computer.
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.
