In addition to the instructions given in the above-link, I found that on a fresh Arch64 install, crossover was missing many dependencies.  Crossover would install correctly, but it would give me errors when trying to install Office 2007. To remedy this easily, install wine: "pacman -S wine".  This will install all of the wine dependencies, which are also dependencies for crossover office.

To install Crossover office on Arch64, you need some 32bit emulation libraries (All of these may not be required anymore, I just installed all of them):
+
 
+
pacman -S linux32 lib32-gcc-libs lib32-glibc lib32-libxi lib32-zlib lib32-libsm
+
: there is no linux32 package!
+
 
+
Set executable flag and login as root or use the superuser command (the Crossover install script doesn't like to be run in sudo):
+
 
+
chmod +x install-crossover-pro-9.0.0.sh && su
+
 
+
All that is left is to run the installer:
+
 
+
./install-crossover-pro-9.0.0.sh
+
 
+
After the installation cxinstaller and other crossover programs may fail to start. Run them from the terminal:
+
 
+
  $CXOFFICE_INSTALL_DIR/bin/cxinstaller
+
 
+
If you see the following error:
+
 
+
  ImportError: No module named gtk
+
 
+
Install the python gtk module:
+
 
+
  pacman -S pygtk
+
 
+
This also fixed a "no gobject" warning that showed up when running the installer.
+
 
+
If you see the following error:
+
 
+
  /usr/bin/env: python: No such file or directory
+
 
+
Be sure you have installed Python (>= 2) and issue the following command:
+
 
+
  sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/python
+
 
+
==Crossover Office on Arch64 via AUR==
+
As the above isn't working now because of python3 and perhaps some more issues, it's likely better to install via AUR. One can use [[AUR_Helpers]] to install crossover-games
+
replace "/usr/bin/env python" with "/usr/bin/env python2" in the following files in directory cd /opt/cxgames/bin/: cxassocedit cxinstaller cxmenuedit cxmessage cxregister cxreset cxrun cxsetup cxupdatecheck cxwait
+
 
+
All should work now.
