Earlier today I went and downloaded Windows 10 #1803 spring update. I was watchful after reading Tim's warning about the DAX system. However, as usual, NO PROBLEM AT ALL. I first went and got rid of all things Flex on the computer and then downloaded Windows 10 #1803 update. All went as it should have and I then reloaded the very latest software for the 6500. It went as one would expect it to. Everything worked right away and all CAT info was there right along with the DAX system and its drivers. By the way, this is the first time I have every gotten rid of the Flex software prior to a Windows update. As I said, Tim scared me.
Good job guys. I have yet to have a problem with the dual core Dell computer, Windows 10 and updates and the Flex software. I have been using Windows 10 since it first appeared. It and the 6500 like one another.
Now if propagation would just improve.
In parallel I run 2 other notebooks with Windows 10 pro 64bit and try all
updates and programs on them also.
What I normally find is, that the security restrictions of 10 cause most problems.
I run all my PC's as administrator and - if problems arise - tick all security options
for the offending folder and give all users full access to them. This almost always
solve the problems.
In my net runs a Linux PC as a firewall between my router and the other 8 PC's and
notebooks of my net.
The 1803 update started to download last night. I did as Tim suggested and deleted SDR and the DAX drivers and then let the update install (it failed twice to install for some reason before success). I then reinstalled SDR. All working fine so far (fingers crossed) and a review Device Manager showed the same DAX installation. The only hiccup was with DDUtil which gave a failed to connect error message for skimmer, but that was an easy fix as it has happened with prior upgrades.
