Description

Program CHIRP installed from the file "chirp-daily-20170627-installer.exe" works fine on my NB with OS WIN 10, but want not start on PC with OS WIN XP and also on ASUS EEE with another version of OS WIN XP. The only activity on WIN XP is showing small window "Error reporting is enabled" (See enclosed file "Error reporting is enabled.jpg").
Enclosed you will find files:

WIN_XP - debug.log - Debug log from CHIRP installed on OS WIN XP
WIN_10 - debug.log - Debug log from CHIRP installed on OS WIN 10
WIN_10 - chirp.config - Config file from WIN 10

On OS WIN XP the chirp.config file was not created.

Stanislav,

The "error reporting is enabled" prompt is an indication that CHIRP installed properly.

For some reason, many users misinterpret this message as being an error message. They read it as "ERROR!, reporting is enabled"). It is an informational message. It lets the user know that the default behavior of CHIRP is to have "error reporting" (the reporting of errors) enabled by default. It also advises the user that this feature can be disabled in help menu if this behavior is not desired.

Just click OK button to continue to CHIRP. If you don't want CHIRP to phone home to report errors, disable it in the Help menu. Close CHIRP and the user will never see this message again (assuming the chirp.config file was created properly).

Smal window "Error.." is not my problem. Main problem is that CHIRP after showing this windov DOES NOT START - no application is in WINDOWS TASKS, no process CHIRP.exe is there. So I canĀ“t work with CHIRP on my XP computers, only on WIN 10 (notebook). And comparing debug.log for WIN XP and WIN 10 there is something wrong at loading data for Vertex standard_VXA-700

WIN XP:
2017-07-02 12:59:49,217] chirp.directory - INFO: Registered Vertex_Standard_VXA-700 = VXA700Radio

END OF DEBUG.LOG

BUT: The same in WIN 10

  • Target version set to chirp-daily

Stanislav, do you have a non-standard character in your computer path to Chirp (accented letter or umlaut)?
That would be the reason.
