Jim the 2 are not related. The Fabulatech ports will disappear when you start SmartCAT. The DAX port error is likely related to the 1803 update from Microsoft. You can read this to fix

You have both DAX and CAT messed up in your system.  Both look like driver errors.  CAT looks like the ports were removed via Device Manager and the registry is messed up.  I recommend you open a HelpDesk ticket to get this cleaned up.  It could be messy.
