Well I'm sure I know what you guys are going to tell me but I thought I'd run it by the collective. 
Just upgraded OS from 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro but I have a problem when DAX auto launches I get this error box 

I checked my sound devices and all defaulted to either built in audio out and a Logitech camera for mic.



So is it a rip and replace of SSDR?

A complete, cleaned, removal of SSDR then a reinstall should fix it.
The Soundcard drivers in Win 10 didn't carry over the Win 8.1 environment. SSDR is trying to use the 8.1 environment, it had previously. An SSDR reinstall should teach it the new Win 10 environment.
