Has anyone succeeded with this? i.e. Getting it working inside the virtual Windows environment.
I’m running into frequent disconnects (http://developer.tobii.com/community/forums/topic/dodgy-connection-on-osx-host-windows10-virtualbox-guest/). It just isn’t stable. I wonder whether the problem is that the overhead of virtualising the USB3 means that my system can’t handle the transmission rate.
I may try with VMWare and see if I have more luck. But it would be nice to get this working with a free product.

Also no joy with VMWare, in fact I don’t even get as far with VMWare. I get up until the red lights go on and it says “these are your eyes” but then immediately the device disconnects. I’m guessing it is a power issue.
I’m starting to think that there is some design limitation with the MacBook Air 2012 I’m hitting up against.

To follow up, I got it working successfully using BootCamp to boot natively into Windows.
I’m guessing it is some bandwidth issue from virtual USB ports.
I’m getting a hi spec iMac, which should allow the VM solution.
