Hello,

the flashing vm is for flashing a CHIP Single Board Computer (SBC). It has nothing to fo with your PC.

On the CHIP you have to brige two pins on the Pin headers to get in FEL / Flashing mode.
The outernetsoftware can only be used on a CHIP SBC.

You have to use a CHIP not a raspberrypi.

But there is a linux decoder around somerwhere on the internet.
If oyu want the webinterface, you need a CHIP.

CHIP is a small computer, just like the Raspberry Pi. See: https://getchip.com/pages/chip
The Flasher tool you have downloaded is to program this computer so that it will function as an Outernet
receiver/demodulator.

exactly. take a look at store.outernet.is.

You get a CHIP with the DIY kit.
