When I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 everything continued to work, including the last free HRD version. I use PowerSDR so I cant help on your SmartSDR.

When I configured HRD with my flex 6500/SSDR I found the free version did not have the flex specific menu choices that I seen in the tutorials so had to upgrade to  version 6 which included them. I use win 7 but that should not matter.

I guess I am more concerned with DM 780 and maybe the log book working with it. I kinda figured that I wont be able to control the Flex and even when I used it with the KW TS 2000, I did not really use it to control the radio.

Hey Guys- I'm having troubles with C0mm-0-C0mm working with 10 to create virtual ports due to the fact the drivers aren't signed. Any workarounds?

Purchase a virtual serial port driver from a company that digitally signs their products or turn off the digital signing requirement in Windows (not recommended).  If you chose to do the later, just Google it to find the procedure.
