Flex-5000, PowerSDR, and WSJT-X

Hello all,

I have a friend that has a Flex-5000, uses PowerSDR, and wants to setup WSJT-X with it.    I've read the howto knowledge base article on setting these up, but the instructions seem quite dated and do not seem to jive anymore.

We were using com-0-com and VAC, but PowerSDR did not like it when I set the driver to Windows WDM-KS and the Virtual Cable 1 and 2.

Also, I can't for the life of me figure out how to get CAT control working either.   

Does someone know of some updated instructions to get this configuration up and running?

RE setting up the CAT - you might make note of this one particular setting that drove me nuts till I finally figured it out. See this link to my previous post https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/wsjt-x-with-powersdr-and-dxlab

I have the same hardware setup, also using com-0-com and VAC. As driver for VAC I use MME. Though for CAT I use DXLab Commander. 
No problems at all.
