FRStack 1.6.9 Updates and Additions:

Global Profile Launch Program feature
This feature allows you to configure one or more programs to launch when the radio's Global Profile has been changed. You start by creating a SmartSDR global profile (eg. for digital) then configure FRStack to launch FLDIGI for that profile. Then when this profile is selected from SmartSDR or FRStack, FLDIGI will launch. When you select another profile or close FRStack, FLDIGI will be (optionally) closed.

Mute All Slices Menu item and Hotkey feature

FRStack 1.6.4 for SmartSDR 1.6.17 - adds a Meter Window, Scanning improvements and more

FRStack 1.4.7 adds Scanning, Band Edge Beep, Band Use Label, SSB Meter Level Mute, Remote Hand or Foot Switch

Global Hotkeys for common SmartSDR operations in FRStack

Thank you for the positive feedback. I receive feedback and ideas from many Flex operators which I greatly appreciate. This particular feature resulted from a collaboration between myself, Sergey R5AU and a few friends.

Would it be possible to add the Version number to the FRStack setup file? I like to keep copies of previous versions and it will be convenient if the file I download has the version in the name so it will not save over the previous version. I do this manually, but I thought it would be nice to have.

Tried to download but get a virus warning from AVAST.  I was able to download the 1.5 version without any alerts.  Tried to update from the there is a new version prompt but it never starts.

This is most likely a false positive or an issue on your machine. 
Run Security Essentials or Try downloading and running Microsofts Security Scanner

I rebuilt the setup with an updated version of the INNO Setup compiler to hopefully get rid of any false positive you are seeing most likely on unins000.exe. I did NOT find any virus or issues with the prior setup.

If you ever have any trouble uninstalling FRStack you can just delete the FRStack folder in the C:\Windows\Program Files (x86) directory.

I received notice from Microsoft Malware Protection Center that they have adjusted their definition library to no longer falsely identify INNO setup uninstaller as infected.

Hi Mark
Thanks for developing this program. I like to also SWL and this has really helped the F-6.5k for this and the ham bands. The s/w always installs w/o a flaw or problem. That is most impressive!
