Grant CrossOver Access on macOS Catalina

macOS Catalina has increased some security measures, and users are now required to manually grant access to more applications than in previous versions of macOS. If you are receiving permission denied errors, you may need manually give your program access.

  1. Open your System Preferences.
  2. Click on Security & Privacy.
  3. Click on the Privacy tab.
  4. Scroll down the column on the left-hand side to Files and Folders.
  5. If CrossOver (or an application installed via CrossOver) doesn't have checkmarks next to it, click the lock button in the lower left and check all of the boxes for applications that you know and trust.
