I know it seems like chirp is giving you that error, but in fact,
_Windows_ is giving you that error because it can't even _start_ chirp.

Hosed because you installed Microsoft's service pack? Yeah, something
was really wrong on this machine to begin with :)

Not unlucky, but definitely in the minority. It's hard to explain the
details of this problem, and I understand that it surely looks like
CHIRP's fault here.

The problem is, your system libraries (DLLs) could be out of whack for
a million reasons, and it's really hard for us to diagnose it remotely
for you. The applications you have that _do_ work properly are either
targeting a much older system in order to be safe, or are shipping new
libraries (compounding the ones you currently have on your system) to
avoid any such issue. Unfortunately, I can't do that in chirp for
various technical, legal and cost reasons. That said, I hope you will
stick it out a bit longer and/or try another machine before you give up.
