How to install CrossOver Mac

1. Download the installer

If you've already purchased CrossOver you can download it from your account. It's under My Account>My Downloads.

If you haven't purchased CrossOver go to our trial page to download a 14-day, fully-functional trial of CrossOver Mac first.

Enter your name and email address. Click Download Trial Now and CrossOver will download to your computer.

If you're using Safari as your web browser the download will begin.

If you're using Firefox as your web browser pick Open With and the default Mac OS Archive Utility program.

When the download is complete you'll find a file called CrossOver-(some version #).zip in your Downloads folder. Double-click the .zip file to extract it.

After you've downloaded double-click the CrossOver icon in your Downloads folder to launch CrossOver.

2. Launch CrossOver

CrossOver will ask you if you'd like it moved to your Applications folder:

We recommend that you select Move to Applications folder so CrossOver is located in the same place as your other Mac applications.

CrossOver will close very briefly to move itself to Applications, and then re-open automatically.

3. Register if you've purchased

CrossOver always starts in trial mode.

 If you're just testing out CrossOver, click Try Now.

If you've already purchased CrossOver click on Unlock with Purchase Info and then enter your email address and password.
Click here if you forgot your password.

If you have an activation code, or you purchased from a third party vendor, click Enter an Activation Code and enter your information.

4. CrossOver is ready to go!

You're ready to begin installing your Windows applications!

In the future you can launch CrossOver from your Applications folder.
