i any case I can assure you that you will never need to disable SIP for anything software that comes from us. That's because we neither produce software which alters macOS nor cannot provide a valid developer certificate.
i cannot look inside your computer but from what we can see, Apple changed some things in regards to the handling of USB devices. As a result, you might need to put the Virus on another USB bus and make sure it is the only device on this bus. Also try to put a USB2 hub in between the Virus and your computer. do not connect anything else to this hub.
what type of Mac do you have?
Gotcha, thanks for that.
I do know that Apple has changed it's USB stack with Sierra, and can sympathize. The software product I manage in my day job has to deal with that extensively too.
I have it on a dedicated port and bus (IR reader, sd card reader bus, but they're never in use). I can try moving it around and seeing. As for a hub, I have a few options there which I'll try as well.
Mac is mid 2011 iMac (iMac12,2)
