SmartCat taking a day off ... will not boot


SmartSDRCat is not booting today on my Win 10 machine. Any ideas how to get it going again? Nothing happens if I boot it. SmartSDR and SmartDAX icons appear in my taskbar but not CAT. All had been working fine until today when I got a Windows **** (stop code) and the PC rebooted . Latest version was installed last week.

    Hi Andy

    I created a support ticket for you.

    I assume you already rebooted the computer and checked task manager to see if CAT was already running, but somehow hidden.

    I have had SmartSDRCat suddenly re-appear and work for a day or two, then disappear again. Yes, I have rebooted PC and checked task manager. I am not sure what gets it to re-appear but it suddenly pops up , usually with previous CAT ports gone.
