I have windows 10 pro 64 bit. A few months ago the program stopped working but still works on my Android phone. It opens but when I enter a number it closes.

    I've deleted and re-downloaded the version from your website a few times. I'm entering the number 8 for the beginning of an 800 number. But with ANY 1 number I enter, the app closes on my computer. Works fine on my android phone.

    Here are workaround instructions to get Whistle running under Windows 10:
    1. Open File Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Vail Systems\Whistle
    2. Delete IPHLPAPI.DLL
    3. Double-click on Whistle

    Give this a try and let me know if this works

    Thanks for the quick reply, Dawn! The IPHLPAPI.DLL file was not there. Any other suggestions?

    when your are downloading are you doing it from our site or a 3rd party ... you may want to try it with a different browser. also do you know how to check the SHA1 hash

    Just tried with a different browser (1st was google then firefox) Still the same problem. App opens but with the first click of a number, it closes. I don't know about SHA1 hash. It has worked for years and now doesn't.
