I recently acquired a BladeRF SDR and I thought it might be helpful to document the installation procedure for Windows. The Windows 7 tutorial is complete and can be found at the below link:

Installing BladeRF in Windows 7

Once installed, the tutorial then shows how to get bladeRF working with SDR-Radio software.

I also plan to do a Windows 8 tutorial. The install in Windows 8 is a bit more involved thanks to Microshaft ignoring unsigned drivers, which the BladeRF has. It will follow in the next few days with any luck.

I've added the link to the SDR wiki. Feel free to do the same when the Win8 version is ready

Thanks Mike! I'm fighting with the bladeRF and USB 3.0 connections in Windows 8.1. They are "a bear" to put it bluntly.

Meanwhile, here's the bladeRF installed in a third party acrylic case, which is better than no case at all. When a metal one comes along, I'll be moving it into that most definitely.
