Since I rarely run Windows, I'm wondering if I can create CAT cables to band switch my amplifier (KPA500) and tuner (KAT500) without having SmartCAT running? Anyone have advice, before I go poking and pulling?

I imagine I need to create them under Windows, but wonder if they're available after shutdown?

It is YES.  The USB cable feature has absolutely no dependency on the standalone CAT application.
