Mac OS X


Is the Vex programming kit software compatible with Mac OS X?


I don’t think so. If look on the vexlabs site I think it actually in bold says it’s not compatible with OSX.


Are there any hacks / other programs that will allow me to use my iBook to code for the Vex?

Is it PowerPC or Intel?

I program my Vex from an Intel Mac running Parallels (Build 3094 b2). The beta of Parallels is required to support the USB 2.0 port for the Prolific USB-to-Serial adapter. It works great, and, for some reason, transfers .hex files in 10 seconds vs 50 on my PC.

It’s a PowerPC.

Virtual PC for Mac… The USB adapter (if needed has Mac drivers for OS 9.x and 10.x)
