1. Launch Crossover Install Software


Double-click on the Crossover icon in your Applications folder.


Click the Install a Windows Application button to begin.


If you're installing a known Windows application from a disc CrossOver should recognize the disc and offer to install automatically.




2. Start the installer


The Install Software window will come up. Enter the name of the application and click ''"Continue"".




3. Proceed through the installation process


Crossover will download any necessary dependency packages. Leave the settings at defaults and install these packages.



After all the dependencies are installed Crossover will run the installer for your Windows application.



Keep the settings at their defaults, don't change the default install location, and continue on through the Windows installer.



If you see a checkbox to launch your application uncheck that option.




4. Close the installer


Click Done on Crossover's Install Software window.




5. Launch your application


You can now launch your application by double-clicking its icon.
