    hi...

    I got some educational cds with windows apps on them and wanted to try out CrossOver but when I try to install them nothing happens - nothing at all!!
    I also downloaded GTA from Rockstar and got the installer app running and was feeling - finally somethings working! But after I got it installed the game it self wouldn't run...

    what am I doing wrong? or have I just been unlucky?

    Crossover sometimes works for me

    I'm running crossover. I didn't have any trouble installing. I do have problems with some of my programs running. IE is ALWAYS crashing...but then again, it crashes all the time with my PC friends too.

    What are you running? I have a MacBook Pro

    I gave up on Crossover long ago, so I now Dual-Boot Tiger/Vista and run XP on Parallels. Nice idea, but nothing I wanted to use works. Even the really small apps don't work for me.

    In running a MacBook... I just wanted to play this classic since I can't find my old PSX version I was hoping crossover would do the trick!! I don't wanna go out and buy winblows cause OSX is wonderfull for everything but playing old PC games...! :) I'm not even sure I would run in winXP...

    No crossover

    I'm not going to do the crossover for a while. I do too much 3d stuff.. I'm sure I'll run into problems. ...:confused:
