Can't get Phidget to work in Windows VirtualBox on a Mac

Postby LucidSage » Wed Dec 04, 2013 11:31 pm

Hi,

Just got my cute little Phidget 1043.

I found these instructions: http://www.phidgets.com/docs/OS_-_Windo ... al_Machine

But even after installing Guest Additions and restarting, when I go to Devices -> USB, the Phidget is still grayed out.

In Device Manager I do see Human Interface Devices but under it I only see "USB Input Device" but don't see "HID-compliant device" (as the instructions say I should see both)

I've installed the Phidget drivers and even tried to add the libraries manually but no go.

Anyone know what I might be missing?

Thanks

I'm not sure why it wouldn't work - it definitely works fine for me. Have you installed the Phidgets library on the Mac?

Yeah I believe I did. does it not install as part of the drivers installation?

If not, what else exactly do I need to install?
