How can I run TntConnect on my Mac?

How can I run TntConnect on my Mac?

Step 1) If you haven't already done so, you need to install CrossOver Mac. This is required to run TntConnect on macOS.
                  (Note: It is highly recommended that you purchase the one-year of tech support!)

                 

Step 2)  Start up CrossOver, and click the "Install a Windows Application" button. 

   

Step 3)  Under the "Select Application" tab, search for "TntConnect".

  


Step 4) 
Under the "Install & Finish" tab, click "Install".

     


Step 5)
Follow all the normal prompts to install software...
             (Note:  If the installation never starts, read this article and/or get tech support from CodeWeavers.)

    

  
Step 6) When you're all done, CrossOver will provide you an icon to start TntConnect.  Drag the TntConnect icon to your Dock for easy access in the future.

    


Any final hints?

Hint #1)  If you have the old "TntConnect for Mac" installed, it's recommended you delete TntConnect from your "Applications" folder, and any links to it from your Dock.

Hint #2)  If you have an antivirus program on your Mac, you'll probably need to add an exception to your antivirus software so that it ignores CrossOver (to avoid false positives).  CodeWeavers has some helpful information on how to do this here:  
    https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/mac/mactutorial/bitdefender

Hint #3)  You might receive these prompts when starting TntConnect.  Anytime you're prompted, click "Cancel", and eventually the program should start up.  (We're looking into this.)  Something you might try is: Under the "Tools" menu, click "Options", and in the Installation section, turn off the Chromium Embedded Web Browser.

   

A user shared this as a possible solution, "You have to go into your mac's system preferences, then go to "security", then scroll to "full disc access", then unlock your system (in the bottom left corner) and then check the box next to "crossover" or "tnt". This should allow the program to run the next time you try."

Hint #4)  If you receive dozens of prompts about "developer cannot be verified" related to your third-party fonts installed on your Mac (like shown in Hint #3), under the "Tools" menu, click "Options", and in the Installation section, turn off the Chromium Embedded Web Browser.

Hint #5)  If you can't find TntConnect under the "Select Application" tab, do this:
                 > Download and open (double-click on) this file:  TntConnect-on-CrossOver.tie
                 > If so prompted, click "Load" to "load untrusted CrossTie file".

                           (Note:  "untrusted" simply means that CodeWeavers didn't provide the file.)

Hi Troy! Which version of CrossOver do I need to run TnT on macOS Catalina? Will I be fine buying the "One Version" for $39.95? Or will I eventually need upgrades longterm and have to get "One Lifetime" for $499.95?

Hi Cameron, Your choice really depends on what you want.  If you buy "one version", you may have to buy the next new version if some future version of macOS or TntConnect require it.  In a few years, this is probably going to be the case.  If you want to pay $499.95 now, you'll never have to pay for CrossOver again.  Or you can just pay $39.95 every year or two.  It's your call.

Howdy Troy, Thanks so much for your work on TNT for Mac. It works great with Crossover!

Re: CrossOver tech support - that's only included if people buy the one-year license, *not* the one-version license.

Thanks Troy, these instructions helped me fix all my errors. Works smoothly now

So now I understand that I also have to buy Microsoft 365 something rather for it to import my database.  I just bought the crossover and now I have to pay a yearly subscription for that?  Is there an easier way.  I'm no tech guru.  I just want my TNT to work and this is frustrating.

By: Troy Wolbrink Posted on 31 Dec 2020 5:33 PM

S Labriel, I'm not sure what you're referring to.  Microsoft 365 is not a requirement for TntConnect.  CrossOver is required on the Mac side of things, but that's the only external requirement.

Its working, thank you soooo much! Greetings from Ecuador

I downloaded Crossover for my Mac in early 2020. CodeWeavers sent me an email indicating my Crossover license is expiring in two weeks: "We appreciate you and hope you’ve enjoyed using CrossOver. Renew today and get 50% off the regular price and 12 Months of support and upgrades. In two weeks when your license expires, your existing copy of CrossOver will continue running, but you will not longer be able to unlock the newest release of CrossOver or receive technical support." Should I do this if I want to continue using Tnt? Thank you.

Hi CareyN, I'd recommend maintaining your CrossOver license with the latest.  There have been lots of changes taking place on MacOS lately, and until the dust settles, you'll need the latest version of CrossOver at some point.
