    • OSX: 10.6
    • Windows: XP SP3, Vista Enterprise SP2 

Can you implement more features?

  • We are always looking for ways to improve our software. Please contact us if you have any suggestions. We cannot promise to implement the feature, but we will consider it for the next release.

  • Using the externals developed by Phidgets.
