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

- Simply run the utility, click the button and type in your password.
- You must be logged into OS X as an admin user (verify this from System Preferences > Users & Groups)
- You must have a non-blank password configured (see http://support.apple.com/kb/PH13861 )
- 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
- Once you have the DMX USB PRO identified as shown in the pictures, you can use PRO-Manager to test your DMX USB PRO
