1.d. Supported Operating Systems

The Maestro USB drivers and configuration software work under Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and Linux.

On ARM-based Linux machines such as the Raspberry Pi, the Maestro’s graphical configuration program (the Maestro Control Center) does not work. This is caused by problems with Mono’s implementations of WinForms on those systems.

We do not provide any software for Mac OS X, but the Maestro’s two virtual serial ports are compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and later. The Maestro must be initially configured from a Windows or Linux computer, but after that it can be controlled from a Mac. If you have Mac OS X 10.11 or later, you will need to update your Maestro’s firmware to version 1.03 or later to use the Maestro’s virtual serial ports (see Section 4.f).
