DAX displays old computer name after changing the name

Using DAX from a Win 11 system to either that system or a Maestro. The computer was being repurposed so, after installing 3.5.8 on the computer and Maestro we changed the computer name from "SEPAR-TRAILER" to "RADIO3".

On starting DAX it has two selection options, either MAESTRO or SEPAR-TRAILER. It didn't change to RADIO3.

So we uninstalled 3.5.8 including drivers and re-installed.

After reboot is still shows MAESTRO or SEPAR-TRAILER. Selecting SEPAR-TRAILER does connect to the computer, just with the wrong name.

    I've been there...

    At the bottom of the SmartSDR window, you'll see the (old) computer-name. Simply click-and-change where it says "Station". Restart for good measure. After this, SmartSDR should show your new computer-name, and DAX / CAT should inheirit the now-changed name too.
