"Legacy Developer:Perceptiveautomation" message in Big Sur

I just upgraded to Big Sur and am getting the following message in the Security & Privacy preference pane: "System software from developer 'Legacy Developer:Perceptiveautomation' was blocked from loading." How do I get rid of this message? Is there some fossil file on my system from some previous version of Indigo?

Re: "Legacy Developer:Perceptiveautomation" message in Big S

It might be because you still have the kernel extension installed that enabled 2414U and CM15 support. Try removing this file:

Code: Select all
/System/Library/Extensions/IndigoOverrides.kext


Might have to reboot for that message to go away. In either case, let us know what you find.

No such file in /System/Library/Extensions, but I do find it in /Library/Extensions and /Library/StagedExtensions/Library/Extensions. Should I delete these?

I can't seem to delete the one in /Library/StagedExtensions/Library/Extensions, but I got rid of the other, and the message didn’t reappear after rebooting.
