Everyone using W10 now :

Please be aware that there is a major new release of W10 about to be dropped on your PC. Its called the "W10 Anniversary release/update".

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/upcoming-features

I installed it 2 days ago and it completely screwed up my CAT virtual serial ports and DAX, also the ports for my SteppIR and rotator controller.

After the "upgrade" I found about 20 random VSPs listed in device manager, and many unsolved drivers too.

I spent a half hour trying to fix it, but as I'm in full contest mode this weekend (didn't want to experiment with my previous functional system), I thus kicked it back in to the long grass.

Naturally, as any good tech would do, I'd previous created an entire machine image on another drive, which I quickly restored, so back to normal life again.

You do always create a recovery image, right?

Remove the SmartSDR ecosystem from your PC prior to doing a Win10 upgrade.  Then reinstall the version of SmartSDR you were previously using.
