I am using KiCad V 5.1.4-1 on Laptop under Windows 10 with latest updates installed.
I have the following problem: I can work with schematic entry and symbol editor but when I try to invoke “Footprint editor”, KiCad attemps to load footprint lib, then an error message “Footprint editor not responding” appears and then KiCad closes altogether automatically…
I have two questions:
Q1. Can the current KiCad installation somehow be repaired or do I have to deinstall and run a new installation?
Q2. If I have to reinstall the KiCad, would the schematics and symbols that I have created to date still be readable under new installation?
Thanks for your help in advance.
