When installing the driver, an "Allow" button should appear in the general tab, there you would need to allow the Elektrosfera LTD company which stands for Antelope.  


To get this "Allow message in the Security &Privacy" you would need to reinstall the driver if you have it installed already! 


After you have done that, please reboot your computer to finish the installation.
