When installing smatsdr it would be nice to have an option to install only the dax drivers needed for your setup.

    can you explain?

    DAX is a part of Smartsdr. Only DAX is useless for you .
    You cant use DAX with any other TRX then F6.

    DAX and CAT alone are useful if you have a 6400M or 6600M.

    [To explain: I use v2 and a Mac with my 6600M. I run all manner of digital programs to the existing slices on the 6600M front panel. The digital programs control the radio nicely using CAT (xCat) and I get the waterfall from JS8Call / WSJT-X, etc. Of course I also use dogparkSDR and SDR on Windows when or if I want or need them.]

    What would be nice is for DAX to be FIXED.

    I still have to stop and restart DAX several times a day.

    Let me explain, I use DAX audio RX1 and DAX Audio TX for both JTDX and Fldigi that's all.  If I need more it would be nice to be able to add as needed. There is another program I was using but it does not play well with DAX. After browsing through all the previous threads it's been a problem for a few years. Program is Yaesu's Wires-x. No complaints just a thought.

    The challenge is that DAX is not a driver that lends itself to be installed dynamically and SmartSDR DAX can connect to radios that have from 2 to 8 slices.  So we install all the necessary drivers to accommodate any model of FLEX-6000 you use without having to load drivers and reboot your PC and or unload drivers when you are done, and reboot your PC..
