Phidgets driver failure

Post by monet3333 »


Trying to install Phidgets on Macbook Air M1 on Sonoma 14.5 but getting this error "Phidgets Driver Failure" Failed to load Phidget USB Driver: App containing system extensions to be activated must be in /Applications folder. Also tried installing the regular one that also says I need to give kernel permission but can find where to give the permission. Anyone know a way to fix this error?

System Settings -> Privacy & Security

There should be a section "Some system software requires your attention before it can be used."

click "Details..." and enable the Phidget extension.

For the standalone control panel, you need to copy it to /Applications and then open it from there. Make sure you're not trying to run it from the disk image or another location.
