SmartSDR not installing on Surface pro 7

I cannot get any version of SmartSDR to load onto my Surface Pro 7, it will download and then through all the dialogue boxes, then shuts down when installing. I have tried earlier versions with no luck, i have deleted all other versions, rebooted the computer. Any suggestions

    What version of Windows? Have you had SmartSDR running on the Surface Pro 7 in the past?

    Sometimes Windows Firewall will block installation of programs. You might try turning your Firewall off to see if SmartSDR will install.

    Tri this, seems to have worked for me and many others.

    1. Right click on the .exe file for the new version where you downloaded it
    2. Select Troubleshoot compatibility
    3. Choose 'Try recommended settings'
    4. Click 'Test the program

    This should then run through the install process as normal.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
