But I never actually got around to trying anything that was suggested, but now everything is work just fine! Here is what transpired.
1. I had to shutdown my laptop to go work on another project (honey do list!). 2. For whatever reason Win10 wanted to do another update before shutting down, so it did its update then shutdown. 3. After completing the other project and rebooting the laptop, CAT started with no errors!
Murphy must have been sitting on my shoulder before, but got tired of hanging around and left the building.
All systems are a go now!
Now anxiously awaiting for the ability to use DAX via SmartLink.
