Note:

  • It seems like after updating Mac OS, D2XX drivers will be replaced by OS drivers.
  • In this case, you need to repeat the Step-by-Step instructions once again, otherwise your Enttec device will not be recognized.



This applies to Mac OS 10.9 and 10.10

Problem:

  • DMX USB PRO not found ?
If PRO-Manager cannot find your DMX USB PRO, your Mac might have a conflicting driver installed.
Download & install this utility, and disable the Apple/VCP Driver: http://www.dmxis.com/release/FtdiDriverControl.zip

  1. Simply run the utility, click the button and type in your password.
  2. You must be logged into OS X as an admin user (verify this from System Preferences > Users & Groups)
  3. You must have a non-blank password configured (see http://support.apple.com/kb/PH13861 )
  4. Once you have disabled Apple/VCP driver , please replug DMX USB PRO into USB port or restart your Mac, and DMX USB PRO will be found as expected
  5. Once you have the DMX USB PRO identified as shown in the pictures, you can use PRO-Manager to test your DMX USB PRO
