    Hi Jim, I assembled a new computer about a year ago - AMD Ryzen 3700x, 16GB of RAM, new NVME SSD. I used windows 10 and SmartSDR. I had problems with CAT and DAX ports repeatedly. I installed Windows 11 two weeks ago and so far, all is well. I don't think SmartSDR needs a lot of CPU horsepower, but nothing wrong with horsepower either.

    Yes, but a high power pc is not needed for SmartSDR. I have run it successfully on mid range laptop with win 7. Multi panadapters take more power and other programs can also use more resources.

    Hi Jim,

    Myself using a modest self build AMD Ryzen 5 PC with NVMe and 16GB RAM and Win11. SSDR and all related software that I have previously used on Windows 10 working without any issues.

    Absolutely running Win11! No problems for me at all. Not running a 'powerhouse' (intel core i5), but take a look at the 'minimum specs' for SmartSDR before buying/building. I believe at least a quad core is now recommended and 16G RAM is a best bet.

    I went for a desktop, rather than a laptop this time, due to better availability (expected?) of a RJ-45 ethernet jack. Getting hard to find those coming standard in laptops these days. :-)

    Easy to find small Apple Thunderbolt/USB4 to RJ45 Ethernet converters for Mac laptops. I suspect the same is true for Windows laptops.

    I used a USB to RJ45 adapter I bought off Amazon with my Toshiba laptop. Windows 10 recognized it and added drivers quickly. I use it with my 6600M and a Hermes lite 2 on my home network with no issues. I have also ran both directly with it as well. Was under $10.00 delivered.

    FYI, I recently acquired a Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 with a 15" display, AMD Ryzen 7 CPU and Windows 10. It will not load DAX drivers due to a defect in the DAX driver caused by incompatibility with Windows virtualization-based security (VBS) on this particular PC. Disabling Memory Integrity did not resolve the problem.

    This issue has been confirmed and logged by Flex as defect number: SMART-8210. The defect is apparently manifest in some newer computers running Windows 10 or 11 with advanced support of VBS (Intel VT-x and AMD-V CPUs). Disappointedly, it may be a long time before this defect is fixed.

    I have all the ssdr features turned up for the finest resolution. It does take horse power then. I have ssdr, hrd, wsjtx, ddutil and stacks all running... plus outlook email, and a browser on 4 monitors... I can now feel the xeon's age now showing... 16gigs of ram is <1/2 used. And the nvidea four port k1200 is running at 9%... with just one slice up. I expect a lot out of my computers... it is getting to the point I need an intel processor with high 12000s for a number. Haha.
