Have you been able to resolve this on your own since you submitted this?
This is actually a question best asked on the mailing list.

No more feedback by submitter.
Two possibilities come to mind:
1) there is a non-standard character (accented letter, umlaut, non-latin character) in the program path to Chirp. Re-locate Chirp.
2) Chirp.config file is corrupt. Find, delete, and restart Chirp. It might be somewhere in C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming\Chirp.
