I installed a new battery in my laptop 10 day ago and it shut off after 30 min. ever since then Chirp will not run, it will not even start up. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck. I have also tried using the zip version with no luck.

My guess is your chirp.config file has become corrupt (it happens a lot with Windows 10). Rename it and CHIRP will create a new one.

If this allows CHIRP to start, please attach the corrupt chirp.config file to this issue. Maybe someone can update CHIRP to detect a corrupt chirp.config file and automatically rename/replace it.

Note: The chirp.config file is found in the same location as the debug.log file.

Thanks, this worked. I did open the bad config file but it showed nothing, which may have been the problem. I did attach it just in case someone else knows how to read it.
