after several weeks of not working and no real updates on the matter, i started clicking around and digging through links again and i stumbled across what seems to be a new suggestion on how to deal with:
1. Navigate to your Applications -> Bongiovi DPS folder and use the Uninstaller to uninstall DPS from your system.
2. Restart your computer.
3. Navigate to System Preferences -> Security and Privacy Tab
4. Near the bottom of the window you should see a section that says that the Bongiovi DPS application was blocked from installing. Click “Allow” to allow Bongiovi DPS to install its virtual driver.
5. Navigate to your downloads folder or visit BongioviDPS.com to re-download and reinstall Bongiovi DPS.
THIS worked for me and i’m not up and running. finally. frustration over, and gray hairs subsiding.
