Dax Driver Error

Has anyone seen the "DAX Driver Error" dialog box AND found a fix?  I uninstalled all versions of Flex software, rebooted more times than I can count, tried the manual DAX uninstall/reinstall, reverted to Win8.1 (@ Dudley's advice from the help desk).  No joy.  I don't want to wipe my computer and reinstall from scratch.  This is mindbogglingly frustrating!

Alex and Ken get the prize.  Thanks!

Run the full installer as administrator.  To do that - right click on the SmartSDR installer icon and choose "Run as administrator".   Took two subsequent reboots, but now it's working.  Thanks everyone for the suggestions.  BTW the manual DAX install scripts running in a cmd shell with administrator privileges DID NOT install the driver.  There's a file privilege somewhere that's not right and the install scripts are not reporting where the trouble is.

Now it's on to N1MM+ to see if I can beat it into SO2R submission.
