I'm a 100% Apple OSX User.

I can't remember anywhere in earlier Pack stating you had to use Windows Software.

So can anybody help - please:

Is there a OSX Version of the software?

How can I run 'PC Interface Q' on OSX?

Will it work if I bought a Windows OS clone for OSX?

Help!

You may be able to use WINE to install the drivers and run the program on Mac OS. Not sure this would be able to detect the usb device though.

If I can ever get the app working again on windows I will see if I can get it working on Mac.

The Windows 7 or newer o/s requirement is listed in the Technical Specification info at the head of the official build

There is no OSX version of the software and the PC Interface Q can’t be run on OSX.
If you have a Mac, you can run Windows by using the Boot Camp Assistant and installing Windows. You may need to pay for a code for Windows if you do not have the rights to it.

I have the application working on OSX but have not found a way to install the com port drivers.

This may or may not be possible, I am not sure yet.



Have you got space for a windows bootcamp partition? That might be an easier option.
