My old v5 was installed in an XP bottle so I thought I would give it a try to see if v6 would install in the same bottle just in case the Crossover implementation of the XP bottle was different enough to allow it to work. It wasn't. I therefore had to create a new Windows 7 bottle for v6.
This installed without issue. I did not have to add any of the additional files that were necessary with v5 so that is the good news.
Now for the bad news:
- Reports still do not display as with v5.
My Heritage links work and display the page BUT as I am in Spain it assumes I want the page in Spanish as I live in Spain, unlike the native PC version it is not possible to change the language to English, the button does nothing. If you click on the My Heritage view record link FH crashes and the programme has to be closed. The record window alongside the My Heritage screen does not update and the record type buttons are not clickable and the display still shows part of the initial browse window.
The maps window freezes when zooming in or scrolling and Family Historian crashes.
It seems that there are more issues with v6 than v5 in Crossover on the Mac but more testing is necessary to confirm.
