Smart Card For Mac Os X


I am having trouble installing drivers for a Smartcard and Reader drivers on my late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB Flash Drive. Are there any firewall or other settings I must set or reset to accomplish this?

I have tried turning off the Firewall and security setting to allow installation of software from any source. I have not succeeded yet.
