I removed SSDR before I upgraded to Win 10.  Now I am trying to reload SSDR but the latest version shows no way to connect to it from download files.  What am I missing?

Bob, how is your radio connected to the computer. Direct or via the router or switch. I just upgraded to Windows 10 and reinstalled SSDR and everything was up and running.

I am wired direct.  Now it tells me that I need FlexVSP  installed but don't know where to find it.  The joys of a new operating system.

Have you reinstalled SmartSDR?  I can't tell from your previous posts.

Yes,  I reloaded an older version which allowed me to use SmartSDR CAT and then downloaded the latest version.  For some reason, when I go to the download files from the Flex site, I can bring up the latest version but can't see anywhere to start it.  The indicator to start the download is not visible on the screen. The finger indicator shows a spot but not visible.  I hit that spot and it downloads. It seems to be working now.  Now just need to figure out how to interface my logging program again.  I worked in Win 8.1 but can't find out how got it working before.

Did you completely uninstall SmartSDR using this procedure on the HelpDesk?

If not, I suspect that some of your drivers are no longer working correctly.

Here is the link to SmartSDR v1.4.16.
