The Chinese universal device programmers by Wellon available on e-Pain are
designed for Windows OS only.

I have installed the software on a Mac under OS X 10.5 using the CrossOver
implementation of Wine, and it seems to run. That's the easy part. Of course,
it's not communicating with programmer, and that's the source of my question.
I don't want to spend the $$ until I can be assured it will work.

Has anyone installed one of the Wellon USB programers on a Mac? Does it work?
What virtualization implementation did you use: Parallels Desktop? VMWare
Fusion? Wine (i.e., Crossover)? Was any modification or additional install
required?

The only way to know for sure is to buy one, say a prayer, and plug it in.
I'm hoping someone has done this already.

Thanks.

I presume if someone had bought & installed one they would know what it is.

Oddly enough I've just become interested in how to program EPROMs under
OS X. Sadly, so far I don't know the answer either in this or the
general case.

I'd go for a virtual machine (VMWare). I tried Wine for Linux but it
only works for populair applications. I doubt Wine will ever be able
to get it right.

A friend has programmed eeproms for his Porche's fuel injection system
(there is a 'turbo' version that performs better than the factory
fuel-stingy version). There wasn't a way he could get the eeprom burner
he has to run on MacOS, so he used Fusion. Seemed to work OK. No, I
don't know what the burner or software was.

I think you'll probably have to use BootCamp to get this to work and
that won't cost you anything but the $140 or so for Windows 7 Pro. Not
worth it? Then borrow a PC.
