About CodeWeavers

We’re rebels. We’re misfits. But mostly, we’re software liberators. And we’re very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver™ software – a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump™ to help game and app developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode™ to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
