MacOS Ventura upgrade - Codemeter Driver Damaged - how to remove?

Somewhat similar to this topic:

https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Setup-License-forum/Unable-to-access-CodeMeter-driver-macOS-Vent...

 

My CM key is not recognized, so went to system preferences which shows that I have the current version of the CodeMeter driver as given on the Graphisoft download page:

https://graphisoft.com/downloads/protection_key

 

When I attempt to start the CM service, I get this message:

When I click on Move to Trash, I get:

I'm guessing this means more than just deleting the Codemeter app from the Applications folder?

 

Running into this after accidentally upgrading to Ventura 13.2 when I was trying to just update to Monterey 12.6.3 😪

Resolved.  Leaving this thread in case it helps someone else...

 

The Graphisoft download site linked above provides CodeMeter Driver 7.40

 

The WIBU Systems download site gives version 7.51 as the most recent version, dated 2022-09-02

(That link may or may not work - go to the main wibu.com site if so.  By the time someone finds this topic, the most recent version may of course be newer than 7.51)

 

The downloaded Codemeter package includes both an uninstaller and an installer.

 

Using the 7.51 uninstall and then install, everything is working.
