CHIRP has worked with Windows 10 since its original release in 2015.
With the lack of detail provided, it is hard to recommend a solution.
Here are some solutions for common problems.

1. The Windows SmartScreen Filter and been known to cause problems
with CHIRP and other software. Disable it to see if the problem goes
away.

2. Windows 10 has been famous for corrupting the CHIRP configuration
file (chirp.config). When it gets corrupted, CHIRP won't launch. When
this happens, just delete the chirp.config file and CHIRP will create
a new one. Tip: The chirp.config file is stored in the same location
as the debug.log file. This page shows you how to find the debug.log
file. https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/How_to_report_issues
