• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.
  • Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Vertex Standard Clone Editor Problem

Hello all,

I have recently upgraded my PC to Windows 10 Pro 64 bit. I have reinstalled Vertex Standard Clone Editor, which I use to program my VXD-720 DMR portables. When I attempt to launch the program, it displays an error message of "Application Failed" and then the program force closes itself. It does this whether or not I have selected "run as administrator." Changing the compatibility settings also seems to have no effect. The strange part of all of this is that the program works fine on my newer PC with Windows 10 once I select "run as administrator." Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks

Mike

Make sure the name of the CPS is what it originally was when it installed to your desktop. I had this problem as well on W-10. I reinstalled, ran as windows 7, and as administrator and that seemed to do it.

Thank you for the reply. I should have been more specific as I have done a clean install of Windows 10 Pro onto a blank solid state drive. The name of the program is the default "Vertex Standard Clone Editor" which is exactly how it was on my old HDD with Windows 7 and it is exactly the same as how it is on my newer PC with Windows 10. The only difference between the older install and the newer install is that I am using a newer version of Clone Editor.

Very strange problem. No matter what compatibility settings I use it still gives me an "Application Failed" message, while at the same time it works perfectly fine on the same OS on my newer PC.
