You will need to have a SmartSDR CAT virtual serial port created (mine uses COM 8 and set to auto switch TX)

Next download and install latest Mini Deluxe (currently v2.1).

Run MiniDeluxe.exe. It will launch to the system tray. Right click the icon in the system tray and select options. Then change it to the com port number you created in SmartSDR CAT and make sure the SmartSDR checkbox is checked.

Please note - I am seeing an issue with latest HRD Logbook version 6.3.0 build 604 where the mode, band and filter buttons in the logbook radio control pane are not updating automatically. This will cause the automatic logbook entry window to not track mode correctly from radio. I have made the staff at HRD aware this evening.
