Just updated SmartSDR for Windows v1.6.21.159 yesterday per the release notes. All was fine.  Then updated from Win 7/64 to Win 10 Pro.

The Flex 6500 operates normally but I cannot get third party digital software to talk to the radio.  I see the following error message on startup:

DAX Driver Error
An error has occurred while trying to open a DAX sound device. The following fault conditions may apply:

- The DAX driver may not be properly installed
- Another application has exclusive use of a Reserved DAX sound device
- The DAX sound device may have been manually disabled

In the DAX Control Panel (v1.6.21...)

- The TX Stream is RED and reads NOT CONNECTED
- RX Stream 1 is RED and reads DRIVER ERROR
- RX Stream 2 is RED and reads NOT CONNECTED
- Mic Stream and all other RX Streams are BLACK and read NOT CONNECTED.


Help, please

The full uninstall of SSDR and reinstall made everything all pretty again.
