Default [SOLVED] "Could not connect to DisplayLink"

I've followed the instructions to the letter, restarted several times. Using the latest (Beta 5 drivers). The DisplayLink User Agent has correct permissions in security settings..

When I plug in the DisplayLink, my external monitors go to clone mode and I get a notification stating the same. The AirPlay icon is visible as I have an AppleTV in the home however DisplayLink is not selected / activated on this so I'm unable to chose to extend my desktop.

When I select DisplayLink, nothing happens for a while and then I get a popup saying 'Could not connect to "DisplayLink"' - as in the attachment.

I figured that having one external display would be better than nothing but this isn't working at all.. Any idea what is going on?

It seems to be working now. I think it wasn't working because of a perculiarity with my system - I use Bartender so the Airplay icon is usually hidden - preventing the DisplayLink Helper from doing its job in a timely manner when the displaylink device was plugged in.

All working now - one extra screen is better than none!
