Crossover program list problems


I have installed crossover to run windows applications in Ubuntu. Then I have installed Office 2007 and I can open .doc files with M.Word.

The problem I find is that the office programs have not appeared in the Aplications menu of Ubuntu, so I can't open some programs like Outlook.

Does anyone knows how to add these programs to the menu? Morover, do you know where the windows installed programs are.

Thanks in advance

Look in your $HOME directory for some thing like ".wine" or ".cxoffice". (You may have to enable hidden files or--in a terminal--just do "ls -a") You will find a folder with a name something like "Windows_C". Inside will be the normal Windows folders.

Sometimes Crossover will create a menu entry called "Windows Applications". You can use the menu editor to set things up your way.
