FW: [DXLab] commander "cannot connect to Flexradio 6500"

Dave AA6YQ

From Eric KE5DTO of FlexRadio:
Dave is correct. There were no changes to any of the APIs for v2.8.1. The only functional change related to the "missing Slice" issue and SmartLink access issue that affects earlier versions.

If you are having trouble with SmartSDR v2.8.1, please feel free to open a ticket at helpdesk.flexradio.com and we'll help as best we can.

Recent update to latest Flex 6500 software SmartSDR v2.8.1 and radio works normally. DXLab Commander will not connect to Flex 6500 new software although DXLabSuite worked perfectly with prior v2.8.0. The new Flex software is required following a recent Windows 10 update.

+ There's been no indication from Flex that it made changes in SmartSDR 2.8.1 that would prevent it from working with Commander. I suggest that you engage with Flex support; if my assistance is required, they know how to contact me.
