Here's what I did:
Uninstalled two previous versions of SSDR, .30 and .32 (using IOBit Uninstaller).
dwnlded and installed W10/1803. upon restart, received the expected (sort of) error with DAX.
I then re-installed .33 over the existing .33 still in the machine, with the radio off. Restarted machine agn., and all returned to normal, with the exception that I had to "re-aim" the external program(s) to the proper sound devices (WSJT-X, etc). Everything seemed to settle down after the relatively minor inconveniences.
Or asked another way, if you are not interested in the new features in 1803, why install it now?
Is it reasonable to think that another update may become available that doesn’t impact DAX.

DAX was forked up when I re-booted.
Uninstalled/reinstalled everything (several times), no change.
Used IObit (a couple of times), no change.
Used the HelpDeck article, How to Manually Re-Install DAX Drivers, DAX appears to be functioning (at least no driver error popups), but when I try to connect MMTTY or WSJT, it gives an error and can't find sound card.
Anyone have a hammer?
Fortunately both updates went smoothly and SmartSDR (and CAT and DAX) work just fine afterwords. Let's hope the other two go as smoothly.
I owe Tim a beer! Uninstalled according to Tim’s recommendations. I also removed two ghost ports. Update from 1709 to 1803 took 25 minutes. Installed the latest software for my 6500 and imported the profiles. Absolutely no problems. Did a backup using Acronis so I can easily go back, just in case. Thanks Tim!
