I, rarely, use SmartSDR for Windows at this point but. I had occasion to use it recently, at 1.6.21 or 29 whatever that last 1.6 version was. I noticed it was crashing a lot. The symptom was a dialog box that smartsdr had failed and to restart the app. It is not clear whether it was the client or the server. I suspect now, it was the client. So, reluctantly, I upgraded from 1.6.21 to 1.8.4. In the release notes there was a very vague reference to undisclosed crashes at runtime. I thought, OK, that's it and I hadn't seen it as I use XPSSDR. Well, first, I need to point out this is NOT related to spurious RF as it happens when no radio or operator activity occurs, it just decides to fail ALL ON ITS OWN. And it does at 1.8.4 as well.

So, no RF, no moving the mouse too fast for the lowly Windows app to keep up, just fails all on it's own. As anyone else seen this and is FRS aware this problem exists?

Windows 10 Home edition whatever the current version is.

Edit: it seems to occur changing bands. Not 100% sure that is it, but it's happened twice simply changing bands.
