MacOS security update stops TVPaint working

I updated my OS yesterday with the latest security update and then it prevented the security driver of TVPaint from opening it up. I managed to fix it with the usual settings by clicking allow, but it won't let me this morning. I click Allow and nothing happens, and I've made a few attempts and restarts already. Help!

I have just tried to do the whole reinstall procedure as outlined here:

but have ended up with exactly the same problem. I have work to do and am exploding with stress!

Hello Catriona,
No need to worry, High Sierra is simly the worst in terms of security paranoia.

You have to be using a regular mouse to click on Allow, not a tablet stylus and sometimes even your mouse isn't allowed to click, this is really something else.

The alternative solution is to "click" on the button using the keyboard:

Please note that your Mac might need a reboot before the trick works.

Thank you Dean for helping me out! I still don't actually know what fixed it but I'm very happy it is working.
