My Flex 6500 is gone. 
While waiting for the 6600 to arrive, should I completely uninstall Smart SDR 1.11.12? 
I am not concerned about retaining my old settings.  It does me good to go through the process occasionally.

Thanks, Dan KM6CQ

Your FLEX-6600 will require v2.x and will not run on v1.x. For those wanting to understand why, the short answer is that code must be added to support the new internal configuration and options of the FLEX-6400/6600.  Since we're providing v2.x with the new radio, it makes no sense to spend extra effort to add this code to an older release that customers are unlikely to use.  Your profiles are kept in the radio -- if you exported them before parting with the radio, you can import those into v2.x (and your FLEX-6600).  If not, I can't think of a reason to keep v1.x around.
