10.4: Provide Crossover with a missing quartz-wm
Authored by: mikexryan on Jan 27, '07 11:05:06PM

In your instructions you say: "In another Finder window, control-click on your Crossover application, and go to Show Package Contents. Navigate to Contents -> SharedSupport -> X11 -> bin. "

Where is the Show Package Contents? All I see in my applications folder is CrossOver.app. I click it and start the application. I then run through all the dropdown menu options but I see nothing about "Show Package Contents".

Explanation please.

Gees, you know what? I'm not sure I want/need the answer. I tried installing Embellish for Windows, a graphics (paint-like) program for Win95/98/2000 and CrossOver brought my entire 3Ghz 16GigRam, 1Terabyte of hard disk space to a complete freeze. Zap. Could do nothing but shut it off and back on again.

I won't try that again with CrossOver. If the CodeWeavers want people to try CrossOver they better add a mechanism that will simply announce "this Windows program cannot be used under CrossOver" and leave it at that. By taking down my whole system it took down a long list of running applications. Not appreciated.

There is a clue in your quoted text.

"control-click" means hold down your control key and click the icon.

I wouldn't buy off codeweavers anyway, if you want wine install wine yourselves, don't pay someone else for a packaged version of an open source and free application.

And if you needs windows support, parallels is, well, unparalleled.
