Expert amp program needs to have ALL virtual com ports removed before it can 'see' the amp and get the USB chip ID... I know I know - seems really convoluted but it is what it is ... so can I remove the 2 FlexVSP com ports without uninstalling anything? I have set SMART CAT and DAX to be disabled and not start on startup, and that works - but the 2 com ports are still there. I tried disabling them - that won't work - the amp program still says there are more than 1 USB devices plugged in ... how can I get the 2 VSP com ports NOT to be there without having to jump through many hoops?

From the SmartSDR CAT User Guide:
The Remove button allows the user to remove a Port. Ctrl and Shift keys may be used to select multiple Ports for faster removal. Multiple selection does not apply to the Edit or Log buttons. Note that removing a FlexVSP Serial Port will result in those ports being removed from the system and may take several seconds to complete the device removal process.
