Thanks for the reply Bob. Unfortunately, that isn't what is happening here. It is still bad a day later. Other applictions see the ports and cards just fine so it wouldn't be a windows lockout. If I were to hazard a guess I'd say maybe a change in an API that broke WSJT-X access. This may take some time an effort to untangle. I'm hoping the gurus will see this and offer a suggestion.

My audio device for IC-7300 disappears when a windows update has been pending / waiting for shutdown, update, restart. Happened 15 minutes ago when I powered
off rig, and powered it on again. I assume WSJTx had a lock on the device which was released when I shut them down, then Windows took the lock. Upon power up of IC-7300 and restart of WSJTx, my audio device was missing as windows set a lock. I then let
shutdown, update, restart proceed. All was fine afterwards. This happened about 20 minutes ago.

Has anyone had the program just stop recognizing devices on the computer in windows 10?
They don't appear in the pick list for the settings. But, Mixw 2 through 4 work fine and see everything (as does device manager)
backed off the last win 10 update.
uninstalled and reinstalled
run a registry cleaner
and, it ran fine last time it was used.
