    Wink Oh well many thanks.

    Oh well many thanks for all the help, i still don't know why codeweavers dissapeared from my girlfriends desktop but i have rectified the situation by uninstalling completly and then going back to the rpm that i had saved on my d drive,

    I would have liked to have known why it dissapeared and what i could have done to rectify this had i not had the program saved but good things come to those who wait,

    Where did you get your copy of Crossover? Is there nothing in the install documentation that could help?

    Hey there techieMo

    Hey there,

    I downloaded crossover from the codeweavers website, Unfortunatly I am unable to consult them on this issue as I didn't pay for it a friend of mine has an account with them and he dowloaded it for me using his details

    Seems no matter what I do I just can't get the program back on my girls desktop,

    many thanks folks,
    Gobo.
