I have used it fairly recently. I don't recall what version but I 
remember it being from the KK_Unified tree.

Yep, really old hardware; I had AJO (Atlas/Janus/Ozy) running with my 
SDR1000 before Mercury/Penelope were even conceived.
I have done the latest firmware updates per the manual for Mercury and 
Penelope using the Ozy Blaster method.
I did check the Connection Type and it is USB.

I thought I was being a good chap by using the SVN!
I don't have VS installed on that machine, but I did check that .NET 4.0 
is in place.

UPDATE: I manually edited the initozy11.bat file.
The loadFPGA 0xfffe 0x0007 Ozy_Janus.v21.rbf was active so I rem'ed that 
and unrem'ed the v24 line and ran it.
Now when I start KISS it seems to be working just fine.
The title bar says V1.1.26.
The Code Version shows V2.4/V3.3/V1.7.

I can now shut KK and start PowerSDR and it runs OK with no other steps 
If I close PSDR I have to run Initozy again before I can get KK to run, 
but I have that as a shortcut on the Desktop so it's not a chore. I was 
really afraid I was going to have to blow different FW depending on 
which app I wanted to run so I'm happy with the current arrangement.
