    I had the same issue with *chirp at first. Uninstalled/re-installed a few times to no avail.

    Then I installed & updated my .NET framework to v3.5 SP1, and it was smooth sailing after that.

    It worked for me. And it’s worth it just to give *chirp a whirl. I don’t know if it’s the “mother of all” clients… but it’s definitely an interesting twist on what’s been done before.

    Hope this helps. Let me now (@sthornton)
