I have the new mac pro ver 10.9.1. I have been struggling with getting the freestyler to recognize the gus dmx using vmware fusion. I was getting the same error in the prior post failed to open port. I solved the issue by using the usb port on my thunderbolt screen. That led me to use a usb hub I have connecting it to the usb on the laptop and it worked. For some reason the usb on the laptop straight through is not working I am not sure why. Well in case some one is having the same issue...

Conty. There is no Mac version of Freestyler. Please review the entries in this thread. You will see everyone is using Windows via a virtual machine.
