Problem Re-Loading FreeDV.

I was using an old version of FreeDV before upgradeing SmartSDR to V1.5.1.
I deleted the old versions of FreeDV to upgrade the software. Now I am unable to install FreeDV version 1.1.
Would someone be so kind as to point me in the correct direction?

Thanks in advance.

    John, the FreeDV waveform is at version 1.0.3:

    Download, install, in SSDR click on File-Waveforms-Install.

    On my notebook the installed waveforms reside in ****/AppData/Roaming/
    FlexRadio Systems/Waveforms.

    What does your Waveform Installer show and which version?
    When installing 1.5.1 I did not deinstall the waveforms.

    Contrary to the sometimes published opinion, cleaning up your
    PC after each install session helps. I do it with TuneUp, but the free
    CCCleaner is also ok.

    Hi Alex

    Thanks very much for the information. I downloaded the program and did an install without any problems.  I'm hoping to make some contacts tomorrow when the bands open.

    I had downloaded the files fron FreeDV home page but had no success installing them. Certainly helps to have the correct software. Thanks so much for the help, Alex
