I've done some fiddling around and have successfully made CodeCharge
Studio v4.3.00.7676 run in Linux using Crossover. This is an update to
an old post: http://forums.codecharge.com/posts.php?post_id=101005

My environment:

This was done running Ubuntu Desktop 11.04 in a VirtualBox VM from a
Windows 7 Ultimate host running on a 64-bit quad-core 4gig RAM machine.
I'll test this directly on a Linux host (not running in a VM), but I
expect to not see a difference. The Ubuntu VM is only a single core
1gig RAM 8gig HD machine and very snappy - a testament to the power of
Linux in a small form factor!

The installation:

* From the Ubuntu Desktop, browse to
http://www.codeweavers.com/products/crossover/ and download CrossOver.
After download you should be able to run the downloaded file directly in
the Ubuntu Software Center.

* Download CodeCharge Studio and remember where you saved it (usually
the Downloads folder for your user).

* Launch CrossOver Bottles (Applications -> CrossOver -> Manage
Bottles). A CrossOver Bottle is similar in concept and functionality to
a virtual machine.

* Select Add, and choose a Windows XP bottle type. I'll explain why I
didn't choose a Vista type later.

* After the Windows XP Bottle is created, install software into it in
the following order:

1. Internet Explorer 7. This also installs a bunch of fonts, the Flash
10 ActiveX Control, the Microsoft XML Parser v3.0 Service Pack 7, an XP
Hotfix, the Microsoft HTML Rendering Engine 7, Microsoft
Internationalized Domain Names Mitigation APIs, and Microsoft National
Language Support Downlevel APIs.

***IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT attempt to just install the Microsoft XML
Parser version by itself without installing IE7. In the list of
installed software, you'll see two versions of the XML Parser -
Microsoft XML Parser and Microsoft XML Parser (MSXML) 3.0. The former
version is vital for CodeCharge to run on Linux, and from what I can
tell is only available in the IE7 installation routine.

For some reason Internet Explorer 7 will not install into a Vista
Bottle. That's a CrossOver issue. However, if you insist on using a
Vista Bottle, you can install IE6, then attempt to install IE7 and let
it fail. During the IE7 install it'll still install the MS XML Parser
version needed. CCS will still run, but the Preview tab will cause CCS
to crash.

2. Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8 Service Pack 1. This is
for your ODBC Data Sources.

3. Microsoft Office Access 2007 Runtime. This will install the .MDB
driver which is required for the CCS sample databases.

4. Install CodeCharge Studio. During the installation you'll get an
error that says can't install the CCSInternet DSN and CCSIntranet DSN.
You can ignore these for now. You can add the DSN's later in the Data
Sources for the Bottle (similar to using Windows Control Panel).

That's all that's required to get CodeCharge to run on your Linux
system. So far from what I've tested all appears to work properly. You
may find that your settings don't 'stick', such as Window layout,
default preferences for the various dialogs, etc. I suspect it's due to
registry writing issues. I'll check more into that to see if there's a
solution.

Since there's a version of CrossOver for MacOS, I see no reason why CCS
shouldn't also work there using the above procedure.

Enjoy.
