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.

Assuming that your radio's MCU-version is VC4114, today's CHIRP daily
build should allow it to be recognized.
