Nope, shouldnt matter because you don't double click on an .exe file to open Crossover. You have to open crossover and then in it tell it to open the .exe so associations shouldn't matter

In CrossOver Office, the file associations do indeed matter - you can double click any .exe, .com, .bat file, and it will launch /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine $APP_NAME.

Oh, i didn't know that. Although I only demo'd Crossover for about 2 or 3 hours and didn't care for it. I would rather just run Linux programs in Linux myself.

Naw, I wouldn't bother. Things don't conflict like that on a Linux system like they do on Windows in my experience. Just go ahead and install Crossover without root privaledges in your home folder somewhere and you should be fine.
