Mapping a USB device (VRTX) for a Virtual Machine


Xima Software always recommends a physical PC for VRTX due to its USB connectivity. Please note that Xima Support will not assist in mapping USB devices or setting up virtual instances. If a VRTX is put in a virtual environment, Xima may request it be placed on a physical machine. These instructions have been created for your convenience.

Step 2 Edit the Virtual Machine Settings > "Add Hardware" > USB Controller > Click Next

Step 3 - Select the Type of Controller > Click Next

Step 4 - Finish

Step 5 - Add Hardware > USB Device > Click Next

Step 6 - Select the VRTX device from the devices plugged into the physical host > Click Next

Step 7 - Finish
