I used to use Kiss Konsole mostly for the wide spectrum display, but 
more recently have been using PowerSDR W5WC v2.2.8 for the dual rx and 
transverter support.
I updated KK via svn and it shows v1.1.26, but it won't run. The START 
light will come on but nothing else is happening, and the 
Start/Configuration form shows V0 for Code Version, Mercury and Penelope.
If I go into the KK directory and run initozy11.bat, then try to start 
KK I get the error box saying I have incompatible firmware.
Need: Ozy 21/ Penny 1.6/ Merc 31
Have: Ozy 21/ Penny 17/ Merc 33

Now if I go back to PSDR I have to run its version of initozy11.bat so 
that I have Ozy 24/ Penny 17/ Merc 33.

I haven't tried going back to the older version of KK.

I could reload the older firmware to the boards, but I don't wish to do 
that every time I switch between applications.

Is this SOP, or am I missing something obvious?
