SSDR V 2.0.17 kills CAT

I just upgraded my Flex 6300 on Windows 7 to V 2.0.17 and all went smoothly.  It seems to be operating normally except that connections to CAT do not work.  I did the Cold Boot after upgrading as instructed in the release notes, and also ran the utility to reset the unused com ports.  

When I try to connect WSJT-X or SmartSMeter they show up properly in the CAT window under the proper port, but WSJT indicates a Hamlib error: Communication timed out while opening connection to rig.

It all worked perfectly prior to the upgrade.  Anyone have any suggestions?

OK, I was able to resolve this by going back and deleting all com ports again.  Seems to be working well now.
