Well, this smells poor.
The problem is that the program is looking for an entry in your
TRMASTER.DTA database file that has a name and QTH in it so it
can "work" you with a real callsign.
Do you have a log from a previous sprint? If not, I can probably
send you one.
You can use the POST U E F command to read the data into the database
and then the simulator will work.
