Running Smart SDR v.1.10.16 and CAT v1.10.16.  CAT worked yesterday, it won't open today.

First thing I can think of is that it may not have closed correctly last time.
Open Task Manager and look to see if it is still open in that list.  If so, close it.

Then reboot your computer just to make sure things are cleaned up.

If that doesn't help, then you may need to reinstall the CAT drivers
You can follow this procedure:

Good Luck,

Click on CAT icon. If it says radio not connected in red, click on it. You should see the radio if it's registered and on line. Click connect, and see if it connects.

I will add that when I hovered the mouse over the CAT icon on the task bar it showed no open window, so it wasn't 'hiding' somewhere.

Even though I had rebooted twice yesterday with no effect when I booted this morning CAT opened at startup as usual.  Just a little spooky but it's working again.  Thank you for your suggestions.
