IQ Stream Driver error

I notice this has been an ongoing problem for many, I just noticed after the upgrade, that the active slice is red and says driver error on the IQ stream in DAX. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, The odd part is after reinstalling it seems to work on RTTY and FT8 normally, but I still have the driver error showing. 
Anyone else seeing anything like this?

    Hi Bill - I have the same experience.  FT8 seems to still be working okay.  I have to get a ticket going.

    I got mine fixed. I had another issue with DDUtil and ended up uninstalling SmartSDR and reinstalling it and it fixed the driver issue too, 

    Be sure and manually delete the user files under user/you/application data/roaming/flexradio sytems/*.* before you reinstall. 

    That cured both problems for me,
