VirtualHere OS X Server does not install on MacOS High Sierra

I cannot install the software after numerous efforts. In summary the kernel extension will not install so the server will not run. Here's the relevant system log:

default 22:26:07.965984 +0100 kextd com.virtualhere.vhusbd failed security checks; failing.
default 22:26:51.145840 +0100 kextd Kext rejected due to system policy: { URL = "file:///Library/StagedExtensions/Library/Extensions/vhusbd.kext/", ID = "com.virtualhere.vhusbd" }

And this is the install log:

bash-3.2# more /var/log/vhusbd.log

Is there a fixed version?? I have a licensed version running on my QNAP NAS but want to run on my Mac mini instead, hence the efforts above. I am using the latest VirtualHereServer.dmg version downloaded from the website.

Its doing that because you are ignoring the popup dialog that says you must approve the kernel extension. You cannot ignore that, you must approve the extension!
