VMware Fusion 11.1.0 does not load extensions. No "Allow"-Dialog in Security. macOS 10.14.5

Hi,

VMware Fusion 11.1.0 does not load extensions. No "Allow"-Dialog in Security Preferences Pane.

It is a fresh installed macOS 10.14.5 and VMWare Fusion 11.1.0.

I waited for more than an hour the dialog to appear.

kexutil outputs:

/Library/StagedExtensions/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/kexts/vmnet.kext - dependency 'com.vmware.kext.vmci' not found.

/Library/StagedExtensions/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/kexts/vmnet.kext - dependency 'com.vmware.kext.vmci' not found.

/Library/StagedExtensions/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/kexts/vmnet.kext - dependency 'com.vmware.kext.vmci' not found.

Diagnostics for /Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/kexts/vmnet.kext:

Dependency Resolution Failures:

    No kexts found for these libraries:

        com.vmware.kext.vmci

So what can I do?

I did a complete Uninstall, Restart and Reinstall. But It dod not help.

I was wondering how to get in touch directly with VMware anyway. I did not find any possibility. I am testing VMware Fusion.

Thank you.

same issue, I have a message : "unable to find a valid peer process"

I'm with version 10.1.2 but it seems that it's linked to macOS version 10.14.5 and the notarization from Apple. Before upgrading, it worked well with version 10.14.4.

Here is the link about apple

Why do you ask about filevault ? Is there a link between  kext extension and filevault ? I don't think so..unfortunatly

Not sure if this is your issue, but this worked for me some time ago.
