Thanks Liam.

Although in this particular instance I have a high degree of confidence
that the use of a VM (Parallels on an iMac running 10.11)  and Windows 8.1
isn't the root of my problems.

I can download firmware to the Kryoflux and calibrate it successfully.  I
can also pull raw flux transitions from the disc to a dump file, and watch
the histograms plotted in the GUI whilst it does this.

Had to pack the interesting stuff away this evening as I needed the space
for modern stuff (fully loaded C7000 BladeCenter for anybody wondering
exactly *how much* space ;-) but I'll have another go tomorrow morning if
the kids will leave me alone for long enough.

Apologies for the top-posting in my other two replies to the list.  I did
it without thinking as I'm using the Gmail web interface.
