Mac Versions

Mac OS official releases 10.5.5 or higher (Mavericks, Mountain Lion, Lion, Snow Leopard and Leopard) for Intel based Macs only



Windows Versions

Windows XP 32-bit with Service Pack 3 as Standard User and Administrator (Windows XP 64-bit is not supported)



NOTE:  Tablets are not supported.  Windows RT, Windows XP 64-bit, Windows XP Media Center, Windows 2000 (and previous versions of Windows), and Linux platforms are not supported at this time.  If you have Appleā€™s Boot Camp version 2.1 or later on the Macintosh, you can use it to run the Livescribe Desktop using a compatible Windows OS.  Although we have not qualified these and do not provide support, Mac users have reported Livescribe Desktop also works when running a compatible Windows OS using VMware Fusion 2.0 and later or Parallels Desktop 5 or later for Mac.
