We use DisplayLink chips in all our USB 2.0 and 3.0 graphics and laptop docking products. These drivers may be installed with or without hardware present yet. Final configuration will then be completed automatically when hardware is plugged in.
Please be aware that it is perfectly normal to have your monitors briefly flash black (as if not connected) once or more during installation. A reboot may be required to complete install.
Windows 10, 8.1/8 and Windows 7
DisplayLink drivers are constantly being updated and improved. (Please note: 4K DisplayLink adapters are only compatible with Windows 7 and above.) The current recommended drivers for DisplayLink 4K adapters can be downloaded here:
DisplayLink Windows Driver Version 9.0 M1
DisplayLink for Mac version 5.2 is only compatible with macOS version 10.14. MacBook Pro 2018 and MacBook Air 2018 laptops must be running macOS version 10.14.2 or later in order for DisplayLink displays to function.
Installing macOS 10.13.4 will permanently disable DisplayLink based video outputs. More info here: macOS 10.13.4 Disables DisplayLink, Duet Display, and Other Devices
Only macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 and earlier is supported at this time.
Before installing an updated DisplayLink driver on Mac, previous versions must be uninstalled followed by a system reboot. For detailed macOS 10.1x.x installation instructions click here. Please note, macOS 10.13 and later requires users to manually approve 3rd party extensions (drivers). Step-by-step instructions for doing so can be found in our blog post here. For DisplayLink drivers, sometimes they need to be uninstalled and reinstalled before they will show up in Gatekeeper to approve.
For users of macOS Sierra (10.12), please read our blog post here regarding known-issues and workarounds.
