missing drivers on clean install

downloaded latest version of SSDR onto new computer (win 10 (64)).  Saw red error on COM 4 in CAT.  Checking Widows system the error is caused because there is no driver present for FLEX port.  Went back and reloaded CAT.  Noticed error saying CAT required the driver and to reload.  Downloaded entire package for second and tried to install CAT as the full install and again as a stand alone install.  Both times got driver error.

    When you ran the install did you run it as administrator?  i.e. "right click, run as administrator"

    Also I assume you are installing SmartSDR 1.6

    did that.  I am wondering if the driver is actually in the package.  This is a new machine so there wouldn't be any drivers from an old version.

    Do you have the exact driver error message by any chance??  Wonder what "CAT" driver it's looking for.
