When you get the update you will know.. upon reboot windows 10 has a splash screen saying "We are excited to announce some new features" or something along those lines
If that does not work then open a Support ticket with FlexRadio.
But, no problem. Just 2x click on the DAX and CAT icons on the desk top, started up SSDR 1.6.21 and everything working fine including all my digital stuff, HRD, DDUtil, Log4om, etc.
Looks like a case of Your Mileage May Vary.
@Tim if you are watching you might want to update this doc to include the MICAudio drivers as well with version 1.6.21 of SmartSDR
Just wanted to make sure everyone knew it was coming and there is a fix to get things back in order

Thought two: if people are willing to shell out an additional $1000-$1200 for a different UI, shelling out an additional $200 for a different OS (retail win7) should be a no brainier.
If you are participating in the "Insider" updates to WIN 10 this kind of thing has become routine.
The Insider updates are beta releases and will mess things up from time to time.
FlexRadio's software is not broken by insider updates as often as a lot of other programs, ham radio or not.
If you consider your shack computer to be "mission critical" get out of the Insider program and just be a regular WIN 10 user.
