I am new on chipwhisperer. i have installed Python 126.96.36.199 and the latest version of chipwhisperer. I installed according to given documents. After all installations, i could’t open chipWhisperer Analyzer. However ChipWhisperer Capture can be opened. Following message shows:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “ChipWhispererAnalyzer.py”, line 745, in

raise TypeEror:< Invalid keyword, argument ‘%s’ ." % k>

It gives the Error like that.
It sounds like this might be an older version of the ChipWhisperer software - are you using the latest from GIT or some other release? There was an incompatabilty with older versions of the CW software & latest from GIT. We’re in the middle of improving all the release documentation right now in fact to help people with this…
Thank you very much for your immediate response. I have downloaded chipwhisperer- master and it is running.Now i am having issue the Picoscope. I am using picoscope 6403 and i have installed Pico-python and installed the drivers of picoscope, but i cant find picoscope in the Scope module. Plz guide me in this regard that how i can get it in scope module. I am not good in Python so plz help me.
thanks I appreciate your time and efforts!
We just checked on another computer and master + picoscope (installed with pip install picoscope) works for us? Can you check in “Help --> List Enabled/Disabled Plugins” to check what error it’s getting?
Azeem, the reason why I asked for a copy+paste is because these full stack logs are more than one line long - we can’t tell what’s going on from the first line of the error message. If you copy and paste that message here we might be able to figure out what’s happening, but we definitely can’t debug this without more info.
I don’t have this problem on my computer. I have the latest copy of the ChipWhisperer source code, but v3.2.0 (from here) would be close enough. I’m using the Python Picoscope package v0.4. Which versions are you using?
Thankyou for your quick response on the issue. I am using chipwhisperer-master and pico-python master. Plz give the link if any other version of pico-python can i use to resolve the problem.
I just tested a fresh install. The ChipWhisperer v3.2.0 software doesn’t need anything from the OpenADC folder, and I see PicoScope as one of the scope modules. I’m still not sure what your issue is - It looks like we’re using the same versions of everything…
Thank you very much for your reply. In installation procedure as mentioned below it require openadc when install python setup.py develop. Plz confirm this is the same procedure or some thing else. I am copying it below:
2.2.2. Getting & Installing ChipWhisperer¶
Assuming you’ve got a working Python installation, the next step is to install & run ChipWhisperer itself. This requires you to get a copy of ChipWhisperer, you should download the Latest Release. Download & unzip the file somewhere. Note if you are adventurous you can clone the GIT Repository git://git.assembla.com/chipwhisperer.git instead, but this may be broken so you should start with the latest release instead.
Generally ‘somewhere’ will become your ChipWhisperer working directory. These examples assume you’ve chosen C:\chipwhisperer as your working directory.
Once you’ve got the file, we run the Python install procedure again (setup.py). We slightly modify it to use the develop command to reflect that the files will probably be changing frequently. Again open a terminal and run the following, adjusting paths as needed:
cd c:\chipwhisperer\openadc\controlsw\python python setup.py develop cd c:\chipwhisperer\software python setup.py develop
If you wish to confirm the installation worked, you can run ChipWhispererAnalyzer in the same terminal:
I don’t have a great answer for this - it’s tough to figure out what’s going on. Your installation procedure looks right to me.
However, today I tried installing WinPython 64 bit in order to test some new ChipWhisperer features. I got some very similar issues to yours: my Picoscope scope doesn’t appear. However, my error messages are different (PicoScope only appears to work as a 32 bit application). I get a similar issue by opening a Python session and running the following:
from picoscope import ps2000
p = ps2000.PS2000(connect=False)
This produces a WindowsError. I imagine that you’re seeing similar issues.
Sorry I can’t do more - I would really need to sit down with this problem and look into it closely, and I can’t reproduce your issues here.
