I have reserved a copy of windows 10 but am concerned about the power sdr software or drivers used, not being compatible. Has anyone had any problems with power sdr after upgrading to windows 10.

    My 3000 worked fine but if you are using Virtual Audio Cable v4.09 you will have to upgrade to the latest version. Bob we0z

    No problem upgrading the main computer-- an HP AMD quad core 6 gigs memory 1 tbyte and an older HP Elitebook laptop AMD dual core. Both running PowerSDR and version 4.14 VAC.

    All software migrated over even some old ones like Publisher 98, and Ham Clock. FLdigi, Airlink, JT65-HF, and WSPR all work just fine.

    I upgraded from W7 to W10 and I found that PSDR would not open. It gets all the way to 2 seconds prior to opening and it hangs there. I removed and reinstalled PSDR but had the same issues. Restored my pc back to W7 and PSDR works 100% Has anyone else had this issue? Everything else worked ok with W10 - but not PSDR.

    Did you uninstall PowerSDR, including the Firewire driver before upgrading?  If not, I recommend you revert back to Win7, uninstall PowerSDR and the Firewire driver, then upgrade to Win10.  After Win10 is working, install PowerSDR again.  If that didn't work, your options are to not use Win10 or do a recovery refresh which is a destructive process as it removes all applications but leaves your user data.

    Followed your advice tonight and PSDR / W10 is now playing nice :) Will see how it holds up. Appreciate your advice.
    Thanks
