After trying to install/complete_uninstall 1.2.1 in my Windows 8.1 machine multiple times with reboots in between, no panafalls start and none will start.  The only functions that display are the right-hand panels.  The new panafall icon in the lower left is grayed out.  No band/antenna/display/etc. panels will display on the left side.  All works fine on my my Windows 7 machines.

Has anyone else experienced this?  I was planning on using this laptop for Field Day.

OK, I discovered that it helps to read the release notes.  The radio ran out of panafall resources.

Here's what happened.  I installed and tested 1.2.1 on 2 machines previous to the Windows 8.1 install.  By the rime I got to this third machine, apparently the 6700 ran out of resources to start a new panafall.  Note that I had not started more that 3 panafalls before I got to the 8.1 machine.  I had assumed there would be no problem since the 6700 supports 8 of these.  Power cycling the radio solved the problem.

Working fine now.
