Error has occurred while trying to open a DAX sound device

Well I'm sure I know what you guys are going to tell me but I thought I'd run it by the collective. 
Just upgraded OS from 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro but I have a problem when DAX auto launches I get this error box image

I checked my sound devices and all defaulted to either built in audio out and a Logitech camera for mic.

So is it a rip and replace of SSDR?

    A complete, cleaned, removal of SSDR then a reinstall should fix it.
    The Soundcard drivers in Win 10 didn't carry over the Win 8.1 environment. SSDR is trying to use the 8.1 environment, it had previously. An SSDR reinstall should teach it the new Win 10 environment.

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.
