    I tried to install the D2XX Driver and I got a make error (Using Mac OS Catalina 10.15.6). I wonder if anyone else had the same problem. Otherwise, the program is really good.

  • Hi

    If the error you are getting is to with no such file or directory realting to libftd2xx.a then:

    the solution would be to make a directory called "build" in the D2XX folder and copy libftd2xx.a into it. Then (provided you have xcode) the Samples programs should compile OK. Poor of FTDI not to correct this in their documents.

    I found that on my imac until I installed the latest update 10.15.6, the smartSDR wouldnt show the FTDI devices correctly but now it does and CW Keying is working as expected.

    Hope this helps.
