Yes, I use VSP with HDSDR to full integrate with SatPC32 successfully.

Make sure radio 2 is set to the proper radio type in SatPC32 for the 
FT-817.  Use radio 1 for the CAT interface to HDSDR. It will appear as a 
Kenwood TS-2000.  You will need to activate CAT in HDSDR for it to work.

I have used this setup many times for a full automated SDR station on 
the satellites with a FUNcube Dongle Pro + and FT-857D.
