CrossOver 12.1 ($60) - CrossOver can be used to run many popular Windows programs on a Mac. Windows software can be installed using the CrossTie feature, and will then run without the need to open any additional virtual machine software. Version 12.1 fixes a bug that resulted in some users receiving an error claiming their bottle had expired and could not be used, despite the user having a valid license. CrossOver will also now automatically update CrossTie files if the user has permitted auto-updates via Sparkle. [Download - 75.7MB]
