Ive been getting that same error message with previous versions as well on Windows 10. It works fine with Windows 7, but I think whatever causes the error corrupts something on the SD card because it will carry over to my Windows 7 machine. Reformatting the SD card seems to fix it. Needless to say, I only program my TRX-2 with my Windows 7 machine.

After reading through this thread, Ill skip this update.

Default Same issue

Just downloaded and installed the new ezscan for trx-2 , on win 7 same issue when you try to copy from scanner/sd card to pc I get the error below . When this happens EZScan locks up and the only way to close it is to go into device manager and kill it off there . Then when you start it up again it asks to set band plan . Sure make for a pain in the can .

Bingo. Does the exact same thing when that error pops up. This apparently has been an issue for a while, because I even encountered it when I first programmed the scanner when I got it for my birthday last year.

If you go beyond the band plan window, it'll likely show whatever it read from the scanner up until the error popped up. I've noticed that on occasion the text tags for each of the systems I programmed will be reset to defaults, but beyond that everything is there.

After I reformatted my SD card, the error seemed to go away, and only reappeared after I programmed it with a Windows 10 machine and read it with my Windows 7 machine. I now only use my Windows 7 computer to program it.

From what I've read in other posts, EZScan seems to not play very well with Windows 10.

Ive been running it (for 1095, 1098, and TRX-2) for some time now and have had no issues. Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. Not sure if the problems are on a different version or not.

I am using EZScan for my WS1080 and 1095, using Windows 10 Home and have had no issues.

Anyone figure out a work around to getting the software to read from the scanner and or card?

I cannot get the software to read either connected to the scanner nor taking the card direct to the PC. Both ways tried have ended in the hard booting of the PC each time when it locks up at the 33% read.


An update from Whistler would be awesome sometime today.

It is valuable as we should NOT have to hard boot the PC when this locks up. Task manager is not available as it locks the entire PC.

My PC is two years old, has 12G of ram and a 3TB hard drive running an Intel Icore i7 @3.20Ghz
So, I know there is nothing wrong with it other than this software glitch with Whistler.

Worst case, you could manually copy the folder from the SD card to your computer. The CDAT folders are where the VScanners are stored.

Exclamation Whistler FIX:

The only fix will be when Whistler updates their software. As long as they have the wrong code as an update you will not get correct size on your Whistler E-Z Scan software. Until they fix, re-install WS1080Install_2.30.0.562.exe which corrects their coding error! WS1080Install_2.31.0.569.exe is BAD CODE !!
