I don't have the factory software.  My xyl threw the shipping box out and the disk was in it.  Don't know how to obtain the version.  I tried to download the software from the internet without success.

I have tried other variants of this radio like the QTY7900.  I have tried Windows 10 and an old laptop with Windows XP.  Same error message on either operating system.  Searching through requests I see others have experienced the same issue.  I have clicked on the post for that issue but it doesn't do anything and I am at a loss as to what I need to do.  I have used Chirp to program the little UV5R units without issue.

Hi Byron,

Your QB25 most likely has an MCU-Version that is not recognized by
CHIRP. I recently submitted a patch to add one in May (VC4114) and
another one in June (VC4104) but the most recent one hasn't been
accepted yet. There are quite a few patches in the queue to be
accepted but the process has been slowed down by the Covid-19
pandemic. Unless it has an even different MCU-Version than the one I
just added, it will be supported in the next CHIRP daily build. You
can determine the MCU-Version using the factory programming software.
It will be shown in the bottom status display area.
