The steps I have taken when the drivers get errors are to uninstall ALL FlexRadio programs (FlexVSP and SmartSDR). You should get prompted to remove the drivers. Read that screen carefully and I believe you answer No to have the drivers removed. Read it and sure you are selecting the correct response to have them removed fully. Once that is complete just to keep things clean I usually reboot though not technically required. Then re-install everything. Again I reboot to confirm drivers install and start up without any errors.

If that still does not work then you should open a support ticket with FlexRadio.

Frank,  Either the driver is not loaded or the service is not running.  For the driver not loaded, try David's suggestion.  FOr the service not running, use this HelpDesk article to make sure it is configured to start automatically.

Even on Win8.1 I have on occasion had to go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and highlight the FlexVSP service and then choose repair.
