Windows 10 decided to crash on me yesterday. Unfortunately Kicad was open, though not actually being used.
Later, after windows had restarted and finished its updates I got back to the Kicad project and found a problem that I haven’t been able to get past.
In Eeschema I right-clicked on a symbol and tried to assign a footprint. All is normal, until the library browser came up. Nothing in Kicad would respond, and task manager showed Kicad idle. I had to kill it.
I have reinstalled Kicad, and checked all the paths I can find or think of.
I have tried the same thing with a brand new project, with the same problem.
I will admit that my understanding of Kicad’s various paths and libraries is a little, er, hazy so I’d very much appreciate some suggestions on how best to proceed to get up and running again.
