MD-380 Firmware Upgrade Crashes in Windows10

Postby kx8u » Sun Sep 11, 2016 1:34 pm

Adding this post to the technical section:

I have tried numerous firmware downloads and get the same result. It does not seem to be related to the radio. I am able to program the radio just fine with various tools telling me the USB driver is working. The only thing that crashes is UPDATE.EXE. The error is in Chinese. See attachment for the error. I am running a new computer with Windows 10. I have all the updates/patches installed. I have copied STDFU and STTubeDevice30 to SYSTEM32. (Found this recommendation in another blog post. ... mware.html)

Any help would be great as I can not update the firmware on my radio. I can program just fine however. Thanks.

I see that you seem to have a space in the path to the .bin firmware file.

I would suggest trying again using a path without spaces.

I tried the compatibility option and it took the version back to xp sp1 / 2 and it seemed to work then. If that fails you can also change it back and or turn the radio off and back on again a couple of times. It might be something to do with the baud rate of the usb connection.
