Target version:chirp-daily
Chirp Version:daily Platform:Windows
Model affected:(All models)


I'm trying to install the 2018-12-05 version fine on my tower running W10; previous CHIRP install was 2018-06-11.
I get an "Error opening file for writing" error.
What I've tried:
  • I've changed permissions to provide full control on the folder as well as individual files.
  • I've shared the folder
    I finally renamed folder and reinstalled CHIRP as a new install which seems to be working although I haven't really put it to the test yet.
re: filling out the fields for this issue -
  • What is "Target version"?
  • How do I designate the version release date for a "daily" version?
  • What is a "Model"?

Sorry, but these bug reports are too skinny, we need details.
What is the file it can't write? Is that file perhaps existing and read-only? Did you close Chirp before attempting to install a new version?

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.
You might get (much) quicker feedback there.

Also, #6295 has some feedback which might be helpful.
