    I bought this because the package says it works for mac, well they dont have the software available and the PC software will not work with Wine or Crossover, any solutions for Datel's Lies and stupidity?

    also, they cant be contacted as they ignore emails and had all phones deactivated

    Use a VM to run windows or sell the thing or get a refund.

    He doesn't want to have to pay for a Windows license. That's why. Getting a VM system installed is easy and can be free. Getting a license for the OS running in the VM isn't cheap. Then again, you just have to use it for a short period of time or find a way to reset the activation timer.

    Solution: buy a PC.

    Doesn't have to be a top of the line dealy, just some cheap clunker from like 5 years ago would do it, I bet.

    Email the team and ask them about the support issue? They might be willing to send you an in-progress version of the mac support or something. It's actually quite surprising how helpful some of the people behind these things can be :)
