Re: [softrock40] Re: New PowerSDR-IQ 22.214.171.124 version OK in Vista with USBtoI2C and CW key/paddle/PTT
- Christos, I have it now working with WinXP Pro - SP3; Audio is an Edirol
UA-1EX external USB interface. Using the I2C-USB which is spot on and
working all bands. Rig is an SR 6.3 RX/TX. You are seeing a local AM
broadcast station on the attach screen shot.
Very nice work. I did have a few issues to resolve at first and not sure
what the problems were but it wanted to freeze with an 'unknown error'.
I needed to go to the 'Win Task Manager' to shut it down. At this point
all issues seem to have been overcome. Wish I could contribute some info
as to what was happening. May have been properly configuring the audio
inputs. Had not opened up the skins at first either but once I installed
those I really like the appearance. Thanks!

- Hi Gene,
I think I've seen reports with success in W7, but dont remember well though.
Also I do not have W7 here so cannot be much of help on this.
I hope that someone with similar setup can give some assistance here.
