The FTDI drivers on some macOS versions may cause an error while trying to open the reader by some of the µFR SDK tools.
If you are about to use the macOS Catalina and later version(s), you may have some trouble using the ReaderOpen() or ReaderOpenEx() functions. In case you get the “READER_OPENING_ERROR (0x54)” status, please check the following:
For example, during our testing we used the following command to unload a sufficient driver:
sudo kextunload /Library/StagedExtensions/Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext
After this step, there was no trouble executing the ReaderOpen/ReaderOpenEx functions from our API.
We also copied the dylib file to /usr/local/lib:
sudo cp Desktop/D2XX/libftd2xx.1.4.22.dylib /usr/local/lib/libftd2xx.1.4.22.dylib
These two steps should solve all the FTDI driver communication issues between the reader and the host.
I hope these instructions will help you solve the issue.
We are at your service for any additional questions and requests.
