Tuning knob not functioning on Flex 6500

I just received the FlexControl tuning knob for use with the 6500. The computer detected it, installed it and said it was ready for operation. I turn the knob and nothing happens. The mouse wheel still does change frequency. I have demo 5000 software in the computer too and the knob works with it. Is there something I need to do for the 6500 to work with the knob?

    If PowerSDR is running before SmartSDR is started, the FlexControl will not connect to SmartSDR.
