      like a better driver could not be found.
      Same situation after a reboot, the "!" against the device.

      Perhaps that may have caused it as I moved USB stuff around previously,
      but I get no problems with the ATTiny85 when I power the SR on. Just
      with the UBW standalone.

      Basically, stuck where I always was.
      I even moved the MCHPFSUSB directory, eventually, after a number of "I'm
      sorry I can't do that" type responses and re-ran MCHPFSUSB_Setup_v1.3.exe

      I don't know if removing C:\Windows\....\mchpusb.sys and rerunning the
      setup will help. They tell me Windows is easy.

        OK, fires up here on wine also.
        I also have crossover office, but neither that or wine could find the
        sound cards, so Rocky didn't work.
        With PowerSDR, it said it needed MS .NET either running mono-2.2 or CXO.
        I also tried building PowerSDR from sources using monodevelop, but that
        threw up errors uncomprehensible to anyone not .NET savvy. I will try
        again with mono-2.4 and monodevelop-2.0. There is also a new CXO version
        to try - they didn't go beyond asking where the PowerSDR sources could
        be downloaded from.
        73 ... Sid.
