You’re not looking for a driver for the Aeotec button. I mean, you will need one eventually, but that’s an entirely separate question. That’s step one in the process in my first post.
You were supposed to be looking for a driver for a virtual device, which I already gave you the link to. The VEdge creator. you need the virtual device for steps 2, 3 and four in the process in my first post.
If your aeotec button shows up in your smartthings app now, don’t worry about it. It will probably be automatically converted to a stock edge driver when the time comes.
Let me see if I can put this a different way. Here’s what you need to do.
(Please refer to these step letters if you have any questions in future posts, it really helps me, because I am quadriparetic and depend on a voice reader and if you don’t give a step number/letter I have to go back and listen to the whole thread all over again to figure out what we’re talking about. Which is a lot of work and I’m already tired.)
A. Make sure you can see the Aeotec button listed under your devices in the smartthings app. If it’s not there yet, add it.
If you don’t know how to add it to SmartThings, say so, and someone will help you.
B. Use the V edge creator to create a virtual device which is both a sensor and a switch. if you have any questions about this, ask in the author’s thread. The end result will be that you will be able to see your new virtual device in your devices list in the smartthings app. For the purpose of this post, I’m going to call it Fred. Create a switch which turns itself off again after a minute or so. Ask in the author thread if you don’t understand how to do that.
Here’s the link. (Anything in blue text in my posts is a link.)

C. Use the SmartThings app to Create a smartthings routine so that when you push the Aeotec button, you turn on the switch part of Fred. I’m just going to call that “Fred switch“ for now.
If you don’t know how to create a smartthings routine, say so, and someone will help you.
D. Create an Alexa routine (not a smartthings routine) using the Alexa app so that if the sensor part of Fred (which I’m going to call “Fred sensor“) is open, you get your announcement.
That should do it.
