Moved to a new QTH and would like to take my Flex 5K and PowerSDR operation to a faster PC that I had been using for other purposes.  The new PC runs Win 10.  What potential problems are there?  This would be the first installation of PSDR and firewire on the new PC.  Have seen a note that I should go to VAC 4.13 or maybe alternative audio cable software.  Thanks for any advice.  Thanks, Bill -- KA6T

If you have ANY virtual com ports be sure to remove them FIRST before you do the upgrade then when WIN 10 is installed and all up to date then and only then re-create your com ports. 

Good luck with WIN10, I have tried it with my SmartSDR twice and with my hardware it makes SmartSDR unstable and locks up the Radio. 
My PowerSDR thought I don't use it to much yet on WIN10 seems OK but haven't left it on long enough to give a good opinion on it's stability on WIN10.

PowerSDR is fully supported under Win10.  So for a new Win10 installation, just load PowerSDR as you would on any other version of Windows.

Been using PowerSDR on Win10 for several weeks now and it is solid.
