I have been using WD for a while now on my Windoz based system - Its been working great with my OS wMR968 using an old Belkin Serial to USB adapter.
I just purchased a shiney new Imac and made an attempt to get WD running
Here is what I have tried.
I first found the old Belkin adapter was not supported in OSX - ordered a Trend TUS9 which is supported in OSX.
I installed the full install .dmg file - dragged it into the App folder. Went into WD and did not see my Serial adapter listed (or any serial adapters listed). Looked in the dev directory (using term) and the adapter was present. The OSX network connections shows it as available for connect.
Next I updated to the newer WD build (zip file). Dragged the WD icon into my applications folder overwriting the existing entry.
Started WD - same thing - no serial adapter. Also noted I cannot exit WD - only a force kill - or kill -9 will terminate the application.
Had an email echange with Brian who suggested an article discussion directory permissions (and owner) settings. I applied those settings for my home users Application path but did notice the system wd folder did not exist (/Library/Application Support) There are other application entries in that folder but nothing for WD.
Finally, I htrew in the towel, spun up a windows VM, installed WD, configured it (yes it did see the serial adapter no problem) and am currently running it in Unity mode on my Lion desktop.
Any ideas/suggestions on how to get this running in Native mode on the Mac??
