• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I downloaded SDR# from Airspy

I ran the install-rtlsdr.bat file, after that finished I found zadig.exe and rtlsdr.dll as I expected so I assume that part worked correctly.

I plugged my RTL-SDR RTL2832U into USB port, ran zadig.exe as admin, selected "Bulk-In, Interface (Interface 0)". But I don't see anything listed for Driver, that box says "(NONE)". I have confirmed the rtlsdr.dll file is in the same folder as SDR# & zadig.exe.

I'm having this problem on Windows 7 and my Windows 10 machine. What step did I miss?

I got it working on Windows 10, not sure how but you don't select "Bulk-In, Interface (Interface 0)" as the RTL-SDR website says, you select RTL2838UHIDIR.

However I still can't get anything to work on the Win 7 machine. When I plug the RTL-SDR in the USB port windows tries to install a driver but fails everytime. Then Zadig doesn't show anything close to an RTL device....

Try bringing down firewall, domain too, inbound outbound rules. See nothings running in back ground using said port. reboot !
