Windows 10 versions 1803 or higher has introduced some additional security/privacy code that may cause issues for some legacy HAM apps that utilize audio devices or microphones. This includes digital mode and CW software.
The easiest solution is:
– go to settings
– select privacy
– select microphone
– enable Allow apps to access your microphone
– since many ham apps will not show up on this list. disable them all.
– restart your computer.
If you have legacy video, camera or telescope software with similar issues, try the same steps for the camera privacy.
