This version of CT, possibly others, requires filenames that contain eight
characters or less that conform to the DOS restrictions for naming files. It
exited without a diagnostic message when I gave it a nine character name
(CQWW05SSB) for the log file. Using the shortened name CWW05SSB worked as

The fix in code would be to check the name for DOS-correctness and exit
gracefully with a suitable error message displayed or provide a retry
