Default sdruno and rtl-sdrv3

I downloaded and installed the latest version of the sdruno software and the separate driver installer from the sdruno website. When I run the software I get an error message that the rsp is not found. I'm using the rtl-sdrv3 so i must be missing something but neither web site is very helpful about getting the hardware and software working together. What am I missing?

SDRuno is designed to work with the SDRplay device aka RSP, it won't work with just any RTL-based stick aka "cheap USB TV tuner" without some effort involved - if you don't own an SDRplay device then you're going to have to go through that extra effort to get it functional:

Because people always find a way and because SDRuno does support other SDR hardware by way of the ExtIO it does appear possible to get that application working with the low(er) cost RTL-based sticks that most of us have been using for a while now. Here's some instructions that might help:

EDIT:
I didn't even realize SDRuno could work with RTL-based sticks at all so, I just set it up myself using those instructions at that link I provided, took me all of about 2 minutes - the toughest part was finding the damned ExtIO DLL file since it's not installed with the current v1.1 installer. You can get the ExtIO RTL DLL file here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...IO_RTL2832.dll and copy it to the My Documents folder as instructed. Run the SDRuno.EXTIO.exe file using Administrator then click Start and then the RX button to get the main control panel up.

Seems to work fine here, now something new to play around with.

I had to jump through a couple of hoops but have it running now. What little I've done so far makes me very interested in the software and, therefore, the hardware from the same source. I bought the rtl-sdr v3 to experiment with thinking that if I liked what I am able to do I would go for a more expensive dongle. In particular the SDR Play. I have one of the earlier sdr's as well and have tried a few of the software programs so, maybe, I'm heading to the next level. Thanks for your help.

Does SDRuno work with Windows 10 and the RTL-SDR? I followed the instructions above but tripped over the term "MY Documents" folder. I can find a "Documents" folder in quick links, but can't seem to find a "MY Documents" folder. Regardless, I tried to copy in the ExtIO_RTL2832.dll downloaded file and got this error message instead: Err. 1000 20.

Can anyone put the spotlight on this issue and see if we can resolve it please?

Thank you! AB9NN

My RTL-SDR (NooElec NESDR Smart) Is working nicely on SDRuno:
