Problems with DrDAQ in Mac

Post by cesar »

Dear Mrs.

I recently purchased Pico USB data logger DrDAQ and start a tets with Mac. When I installed PicoScope- on my MacBook Pro along with MonoFramework MDK-, The device did not work correctly. Only demo mode was available.
I then tried to install the MonoFramework version MDK-5.2.0 and the situation got even worse because neither Demo mode became available. However, after deleting the MDK-5.2.0 version and reinstalling the MDK- version, the device worked perfectly well, both in DEMO mode and acquisition mode. I would like to understand what happened.

Thanks for any clarification

Hi Cesar,

It is possible that this may have been down to the configuration of the MonoFramework.

A trace.xml file can sometimes give an indication when an issue occurs, but it can be overwritten if the application is closed and restarted.

If you do encounter the issue again, please locate the trace.xml and post it here or e-mail it to
