Installing Crossover Office


I downloaded Crossover Office for runnining Windows Applications

When I started to install as Root user it said only root users can use the application other users cannot use it

So i logged in as a user and installed Crossover Office and Installed Microsoft Office XP

It was insatlled successfuly and I am able to use it

Now When I log out of that user and Log in as root or another user I am not able to see the Windows applications in the Program menu

As a root user I am not able to see the installed windows application in the Program Menu and when i log into others users created I am able to see it but not able to use it

So this is the condition I need this to be used by all users
What Shall I do?Should I install each and every time for every user?

Please guide I am able to use only in the user Wher I installed the application

It's probably actually a violation of the various applications
license to allow everybody to use the one installed app.
Maybe crossover made it this way on purpose, so that
they wouldn't get sued.

Simple, you should not be logging in as root. Always log in as user, and use "su" from a terminal to switch to root temporarily when you need it.

it's abt version

It's because ur using the single user version of Crossover Office 2.0

The old version, 1.3.1 does allow the root to install all the win apps
and serve it to the other users

They probably change the method 'cos they want u to buy the
multi user copy. If u do use it for many users u can purchase
the multi user license version
