RE: [K12OSN] Accelerated Reader - Crossover Office?



I have it running with Crossover office.  I haven't tried with plain ole
Wine yet.  (One of our student workers spent a while on it, but I sent him
to do something else.)

I can open AR and tell it I am previewing the product.  It lets me in.  

I think it has to do with read/write permissions.  

I will keep you posted on my progress - or lack thereof.

Does it work with wine, or does it require crossover office?
