Thanks, good explanation! :-)

Some crazy thoughts on running EXE's on Macs follow. . .

CrossOver (or anyone else for that matter) could build a Mac compiler/packager that packages a windows program, such as a NeoBook-made EXE, AND the WINE libraries (windows, without windows, that is) and that would be a distributable .EXE embedded and repackaged as a Mac .APP that would essentially allow a Mac end-user to run a Windows Exe without having Windows or Crossover installed, or even knowing that he/she is running a Windows EXE.

I'm just happy as all get-out that NeoBook runs with CrossOver! :-)

Thanks also for the good news!
When you have more info about running neobook with plugins (and specially with my plugins ;-) ), it would be nice to let us know here.
So when a MAC user asked about a MAC-version of our neo-apps, we could offer the second best solution to run it with CrossOver.
So keep on.

any news with your tests of the crossover trial?

Are plugins supported?

Hi, I did some more testing. I'd say that overall, Crossover has a lot of promise, but it is still essentially a beta (some might say Alpha) product. There graphical anomolies, unexpected results, etc.

I wouldn't recommend it to a paying customer to use with your applications, but I would certainly keep a close eye on its development.

I took screenshots while I was playing around with installing NeoBook and running a couple sample pubs in Crossover. It's 15MB PDF file.

Hope that's helpful!
John :-)

This one looks interesting too:

Both products miss the point!
You will need a windows license.

But as long crossover is kind of alpha, it is the only option.

So we keep playing windows-only.

Hi All,

The last post in this thread was in 2007; it is now 2010. I wonder if anyone has tried the latest release of Crossover Mac to see if Neobook applications will run seamlessly?


It would be great if someone could do some testing for us! ;-)

I have a Mac so if someone has any particular apps they would like me to try, just let me know.

I will give a try on a couple simple ones over the weekend. I don't own Crossover yet, but I can install the trial.

It would be very interesting to see what database access I could use, mdb, etc..

I'm using NeoBook with CrossOver on Linux Mint 10 - no problem at all, all plug-ins I required working without problems :-)

Ideal soultion for me - power of Linux and best RAD ever :-)
