Installation of .NET under Linux - CrossOver platform?

Posted on 2007-07-28

Last Modified: 2013-11-07
How does one install .NET framework under Linux and CrossOver? I would like to install an application that "requires" .NET. I tried installing .NET under CrossOver and it indicated that it required MS IE and MS Installer to be installed. Before I waste too much time, I would like to know if others have been successful at this.

Thanks if advance,

Why not just use Mono? Then you've got a native .net implementation instead of trying to hack around using emulation.

I suggest (and use) VMware as well.

I've been trying to get Linux to work with my critical Windows applications (I only have a handful, including: XL, PaperMaster and MindManager). However, the latter requires the .NET environment to be installed and even after installation with CrossOver, it still complains.

It would seem from the other comments here that the answer has been given, but it would appear that the answer given is not what the OP wanted.

The OP wanted to run a windows app in linux, and he was told that it wasnt possible, given the current state of CrossOver.

This would be the correct answer.

This along with suggestions as to how to handle the situation would seem to me to be a complete response.
