Hi all, i'm a new (used) Flex 3000 owner, is this the correct forum (place) to ask questions about PowerSDR? Attempting to install everything per KE9NS website, but getting an error as seen on the attachment, i've shown the directory where the program is installed as well. I'm sure i'm missing something... it's late.. and i'm tired.. :P
 
If there is another forum for PowerSDR, please advise (i.e. Yahoo Group, etc.).

Thank you!

Johnny, this seems to be NET framework related.
You should have NET 4.5.2 and C++ redistributable 2015 installed, as per the
instructions on Darryl's webpage http://www.ke9ns.com/flexpage.html
You can also mail him directly if this error persists. 73, Alex - DH2ID

Did you install the original power sdr 2.7.2 from flex radio first as the directions tell you to do? It does not look like you did.

If the wrong .NET version is not installed, the PowerSDR installer will either do it for you (if running off CD) or point you to the location to get it from the Internet and then abort the install process.

What is happening here is that when PowerSDR starts, it spawns a process (program) to automatically update the firmware.  This is not running on your PC.  I suspect that there is a virus program or Internet security suite that is incorrectly interpreting this process as malicious, which is is not.  If these things are running on your PC, turn them off to verify.  Then whitelist PowerSDR so it will not stop the program from initializing.
