    I recently upgraded to Mojave on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012), I have a 857D and use MacLoggerDX. Since the upgrade I am unable to MLDX to control the radio. I know it is a driver problem but for the life of me I can't figure it out. I have tried other forums and although I have been given what seems to be good information, nothing works. I feel it is probably something simple but I need help.

    When I go to system report under USB it does show it is connected. The problem comes in with the drivers. I am able to download the D2XX driver but cannot get it to load when I look under Extensions. The VCP driver will download and shows it is loaded but it will not work. When I look at the port in MLDX all I have is Bluetooth.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Did you go to the Security and Privacy Pane and allow the extension to load under the general tab? The extension won't load until you specifically authorize it.

    Did you have the USB cable physically disconnected from the Mac while installing the drivers? Failure to do so will prevent the updated driver from successfully installing.

    The best advice I have would be to make sure you have the USB cable physically disconnected from the Mac (not just with the rig off), run whatever "uninstall" application is required for your cable. Reboot. Rerun the installation routine. Reboot. Only then reconnect the USB cable to the rig and then check the Security and Privacy Pane.

    Also, just a shot in the dark (since I'm not familiar with the software), do you need to go into Accessibility to enable its drivers?
