Hi there, I just upgraded my computer to a brand new windows 10 64 bit machine. It's great. I installed a PCIe firewire card that has a chipset on the approved list. Now I run 3 firestudio project cards for 24 inputs. I've been able to get 1 card at a time to briefly work. But most times I try to launch UC with any of the sound cards connected I get this error that says UC wasn't installed correctly. Restart and or reinstall.. I've done that several times. I've removed all the associated files from %appdata% and reinstalled.. And UC just keeps on crashing. Any help would be much appreciated!



After some more troubleshooting.. I've found I can run any one of my 3 cards on it's own. I only get driver errors when I start to cascade the units. I've tried almost every possible combination with the 3 units as far as order goes and nothing works. As soon as I cascade It's crash city.

The lowest serial number must be attached to the computer, then the next highest, then the highest in the chain. Make sure you're doing that first.
