BootCamp problems

To Mac users only

There has been recent issues with BootCamp on Windows: Apple input devices on Windows suddenly do not work any more.

We don't know the root cause of the problem but it seems to be related to recent Windows and/or macOS updates. We can't fix it but we try to help as good as possible.

Please do not buy a license if your device doesn't work at all with BootCamp.
