SmartSDR 2.10.1 - Blue Screen of Death

I am running Windows 11 Pro, version 22H2, and SmartSDR v2.10.1. Over the last couple of weeks I've suddenly had the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) occur 3-4 times, rebooting my computer unexpectedly. In every case the bug check screen is 'PAGE_FAULT_NONPAGED_AREA' and mentioned 'Portcly.sys'.

  1. In all but one instance, the BSoD occurred when launching SmartSDR v2.10.1 (after launching the Antenna Genius utility v4.1.1 and Slice-Master v0.11.0g). It hasn't happened every time I launch SmartSDR v2.10.1 but has sometimes occurred when I shutdown SmartSDR and then relaunch SmartSDR without rebooting my computer.
  2. In one instance the BSoD occurred when I expanded DAX and selected audio '4' because it didn't activate with I selected '4' for the slice where I was running WSJT-x.

As you can imagine, it can be annoying to have the BSoD occur at anytime but particularly when trying to work an ATNO.

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.
