Windows 10 attempts to lock down USB port assignments as a security measure,
and does so again with each update. Some apps are smart enough to deal with
this, but Winlink is basically a 1990s era Email application and is
susceptible to issues like this.
There are numerous articles on how to deal with it. Some that want to sell
you an app to fix it, some that tell you how to fix it yourself (i.e.: The
Windows Club website). Select the one that best matches your comfort level.
Worst case scenario, you fix it manually after every Windows update. But at
least you are aware of what needs fixing, and how to do it.
In most cases, you need to go into the Soundcard settings for the Mode you
have selected (i.e.: Vara HF Winlink) and change the input and output
devices to USB Audio Codec.
Are you participating in the Red Cross drill next Saturday?

Oh yes... All other software using the PTT and mic are working fine...
Just Winlink fails to PTT.
