CrossOver Mac is designed to allow applications from other platforms, primarily Windows, to run on Mac OS X without the need for emulators or dual booting the computer which requires a restart and wasted hard disk space on your Mac.
To say that the software achieves this is an understatement to say the least. The first element of the program that needed testing, was naturally the installation and setup. As with the majority of OS X software, installation was simply a process of drag and drop into the applications folder. Registering the software was a breeze too. I simply had to register on the CodeWeavers website and then register the software using the same details. CrossOver Mac will not always be free.
