Any issues with Windows 10/11?

We find that a Win10/11 installation is as reliable as Win7/Win8/Win8.1, but upgrading Windows from a previous Windows version can cause some issues.

Upgrading an older version of Windows to Win10/11 can have some issues with detecting the camera. If this happens, be sure to ‘show the hidden devices’ in the Windows Device Manager the camera sometimes seems to be stuck there. If you find your camera as hidden, delete it and then allow the computer to re-detect it and install the drivers properly for it.

As usual, Windows is a bit of a mystery. But we are glad to see that it works.

Are there versions available for iOS or Android devices?

No. Unfortunately, There isn’t an official SDK and drivers for these devices, so we cannot communicate with a DSLR’s from iPhones, iPads and Android devices. We hope that this is supported in the future.

Does it run under Windows RT?

Windows 8 RT is not supported. Note: An x86 (non-ARM) cpu will be required as that is what the device drivers require. Some Windows RT tablets are ARM-based, and will not work now or likely in the future.

Will it run on a Mac?

No.  Although some users will try to run it Windows in a virtualized environment on a Mac, we don’t support it.

Is there Mac version?

Not yet, but may be plans for this in the future.
