Windows 10, latest update for 6500, all drivers updated.
Could you take a screen snapshot of your FLDigi audio settings window? Also take a snapshot of the DAX control panel. My suspicion is that your DAX setup is messed up by the WIndows 10 Spring Update and you are seeing a symptom of it when activating the portaudio checkbox in fldigi.
FLdigi no longer receives any audio from DAX. DAX is working though I did uninstall and re-install per the Flex instructions using cmd.exe. The list looks okay.
I can't recall ever seeing port audio device not available. My suspicion is some MS nonsense - maybe an update they slipped in over the last week or two. FLdigi was working several weeks ago.
This started early this afternoon trying to set up WSJT-X and FT8. WSJT could not open the audio device. It went downhill from there.
I have attached a screen shot.
Any ideas appreciated. I've given up on digital for now - too much time wasted today and headache from hitting the wall.. Still, any ideas.
"The fix for the loss of audio I/O for the Windows Update 1803 appears to be fairly easy to fix.
Go to Settings and select Privacy. Then select Microphone from the menu on the left side.
Check the box titled "Allow apps to access your microphone.
You will then have to decide which other, if any, apps need to be turned off or on (Camera, Cortana, etc.).
This was posted by Joe Subich, W4TV, earlier. Wanted to share it here."
Working on privacy concerns - and who shouldn't be worried - I turned off mic access and that as it turns out seems to kill Port Audio and probably other things. Followed the info above and FLdigi and WSJT-X working fine. Who knew??
You can still turn off individually the other "junk/trash/nonsense" access to the mic.
Paint me moron! I need a lessons learned list; starting now.
