It's been fixed.

New hamlib for installation directions

#1 Shut down WSJTX

#2 Download either the 32-bit or 64-bit DLL matching the 32/64-bit version of WSJTX -- hopefully your browser doesn't block it but may warn you multiple times.

If you can do a "Save As" you can save it directly in the appropriate WSJTX directory
C:\WSJT\WSJTX\bin and replace the libhamlib-4.dll that is there.

http://n0nb.users.sourceforge.net/dll32/libhamlib-4.dll

http://n0nb.users.sourceforge.net/dll64/libhamlib-4.dll

Linux/Unix/Mac users need to compile the latest tar file from http://n0nb.users.sourceforge.net
Note: If compiling on Unix-like systems please uninstall any Hamlib package you have before installing the new build

#3 If you don't save directly you need to open a file browser and move the file that way.

If you're not familiar with that here's a video on the file browser - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyVqCJrs9dk

Fixed on our Flex6400 following the procedure set by Mike. Make sure WSJT is closed AND SSDR is closed.

Mike's fix has things working for me with my Flex-6700...thanks!

Would seem you didn't place the dll in the right place or didn't call it libhamlib-4.dll

Willie,
What is the error? You say the Flex/Anan PowerSDR selection works....is that with the network connection to a Virtual Port of USB-Serial connection?
Thanks,
Pat, W5VY - Flex 6700

They have updated a version for flex6xxx on the website correcting the issue.

The Princeton site still contains the broken version.

This 64-bit DLL fixes the problem.  32-bit DLL will be available tomorrow from https://n0nb.users.sourceforge.net/

Can confirm this problem is still happening, Yestorday I upgraded to RC5 from RC4 on princetons website, and then my Flex Cat control wouldent work as shown in OP's post. Used the new dll and pasted it in and its working again! Thank you guys.
