Steven, Danny, and Ben,

Thanks for the help identifying the source of the crash and how to read the traceback, exception, paths, and search for errors. Very helpful since I’m quite new to Python programming. I'll send details to opendaq, and ask on the wxpython forum to see if they know what causes this. 

The GUI is open source from the opendaq folks, available on PYPI, and as surmised is tied to their commercial data acquisition hardware. They’re good about responding, so expect they’ll fix it.

I tried reinstalling wxpython but the error persisted. Thanks for places to look.

Have you worked on easy_daq or did you download the GUI ?
