I made it!

– I uninstalled the original driver.
– Then I installed the old one the Jorge linked to.
– Then I allowed the kernel extension as UtaSH mentioned.
– Restart.
– Now I installed the most recent driver.
– Restart.
– Allowed the kernel extension again.

Now it works!
Nice. That is the proof of what I’m saying for weeks now, the newer driver is broken

Well, I think its rather about the kernel extension actually. But anyway, it worked for me. Hope it works for you too.

That is not an option on the newer driver. It’s broken, I’m saying that for weeks now
Hi Jorge_rui,

Are you working directly at your mac or are you connected remotely to it? (See here.)

It could be as well that you have another 3rd party driver installed that is asking for approval. Check if this is the case and if yes uninstall that software. You should then have the possibility to "Allow" the 3Dconnexion kernel extension.

I'm not using nay kind of virtualization.
If you are using that on your test machine, don't. A think that no one that make any serious/profissional CAD work uses things like Parallels or virtualBox, etc...

I finally got this working in high sierra, by installing the old driver and then installing the new driver, allowing for the new security setting.

It finally worked. But when I restarted just now it is back to no longer clicking.

i can't believe a simple mouse is having so many technical issues. is there a fix for this yet?
