Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus config failure

I have flashed following software to my newly acquired Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus:

Got SUCCESS at the end, so then moved to the next step. Inserted into RPI4 with HA. Under Integrations I found my device, but after hitting Configure button I got some error message


Installed Zigbee2MQTT and set it up, however I was not able to discover any devices. Suspect that something went wrong during configuration and that device is not working properly as a result. When can I try to do? Already restarted HA, then took out Sonoff Zigbee device, deleted integration, inserted dongle back and rediscovered, but ended with the same config error message.

By the way, in device list I do see device:

Texas Instruments CC1352/CC2652, Z-Stack 3.30+ (build 20220219)

When I checked log, I see following message:

and following text:

You are trying to configure both ZHA and Zigbee2mqtt using the same stick. That won’t work. Try removing the found ZHA integration.

Thank you , thought both of those have to be installed and configured to make it work. I have removed (deleted) ZHA. It was discovered again, but this time I did not run configuration, and moved it to ignore list, so that should not be in a way now. However zigbe2mqtt is not detecting any of my devices. I have started new thread, as I thought the subject is somewhat different now. New thread is here:
