CrossOver demo install question and your opinion too


Hello all,

I wanted to install CrossOver so that my wife and I could use iTunes, so I downloaded the demo version. The install instructions that came with the download state:

Quote:
Product: CrossOver Office Standard Demo Version
Access Key: Revenge80200@yahoo.com Serial Number: 85906223010721-59680d0685a
- Then do This: -
1.) Start the download, and save the file to your hard disk,
e.g. ~/install-crossover-standard-demo-3.0.1.sh
2.) Execute the single shell script in a terminal, e.g.:
sh ~/install-crossover-standard-demo-3.0.1.sh - Enjoy!
but when I try that via konsole, I get this message:

[eek@eek Desktop]$ su
Password:
[root@eek Desktop]# sh ~/install-crossover-standard-demo-3.0.1.sh
/root/install-crossover-standard-demo-3.0.1.sh: /root/install-crossover-standard -demo-3.0.1.sh: No such file or directory
[root@eek Desktop]# exit
exit
[eek@eek Desktop]$ sh ~/install-crossover-standard-demo-3.0.1.sh
/home/eek/install-crossover-standard-demo-3.0.1.sh: /home/eek/install-crossover-standard-demo-3.0.1.sh: No such file or directory
[eek@eek Desktop]$


Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong? Also, have you an opinion on CrossOver? Is the forty bucks worth it or should I try something else instead?

Thanks,
Eric.

You need to cd into the directory and then just do sh install......sh

And Xover is a pretty good product.

Hi XavierP, thanks for taking the time to help.

The strange thing is is that there in no folder, it is just a shell script.

Any ideas?
Eric.

are you in the folder that the file resides in? the bit that looks like this "~/" just means your home directory.
