CHIRP will not open with a corrupt chirp.config file and Windows 10 is becoming famous for corrupting the chirp.config file. The work around is delete or rename the chirp.config file (but please attach a copy here first so a developer can examine it) and CHIRP will create a new one. The chirp.config file is in the same folder as the debug.log file. Here is a page that explains how to find the debug.log file.
