Old versions of SmartSDR. Can old versions of SmartSDR be deleted or are there dependencies for the newer versions?

Bob, that is a really good question. As Richard indicated, deleting older versions of SmartSDR will have no operational affect on later installed versions.

What would be the process if a user every needed to "roll back" a version to an earlier one?

Thank you and 73

Steve,

Currently there isn't a roll back process. Starting with SmartSDR v0.13.10 and greater, the radio will load the required radio software for the particular version of SmartSDR for Windows you are running, so in the future, if you run an older version (greater than 0.13.10) of SmartSDR for Windows, the radio will down rev itself. Load a newer version of SmartSDR for Windows, the radio will upgrade itself.

Tim,

That would be useful information to include in the release notes for the next version of the SmartSDR release.
