[chirp_users] CHIRP DOWNLOAD problems

I downloaded CHIRP from the Web Site to WD 10 and after the down load was
completed there was no sign of a CHIRP shortcut on my desk top. 


Went to C: (x86) CHIRP and found shortcut. I dragged the shortcut to
Desktop. I clicked on the CHIRP ICON and Chirp loaded. 


I then installed the Baofeng USB Programming Cable for Baofeng Two way Radio
UV-5R, BF-888S,BF-F8+ With Driver CD to my BF-F8HP Radio. 


I attempted to install the Driver CD and found it corrupted. 


I thought that my windows 10 had the most up to date USB Driver and I would
not need the one that came with the Programing Cable. I may have been wrong
and do need a special Driver. 


I than plugged the programing Cable in to the USB Port and then the Radio,
turned the Radio on, started CHIRP, clicked the Radio Menu, input vendor
info, started download.


Message:


Due to the fact that the manufacturer continues to release new versions of
the firmware with obscure and hard-to-track changes, this driver may not
work with your device. Thus far and to the best knowledge of the author, no
UV-5R radios have been harmed by using CHIRP. However, proceed at your own
risk! 





Typed USB in port assignment  box and tried again with the following
results.





Do I need a special USB Driver?


Can anyone help me with this problem?


 


Thanks in advance,


 


Scott
