Re: Driver installation failed on Windows 10

For some reason after the Windows 10 1903 update my dongle quit working and I got the same error message when trying to reinstall the driver with Zadig. USBDriverTool worked fine though.

Re: ExtIO_RTLSDR# - custom ExtIO for RTLSDR

Re: Dongle Case Temp. When Running ?

It's fine. The case acts like a heat sink to keep the dongle working at it's optimum operating temperature and it should be warm. I run mine 24/7 for ADS-B and I have no issues.

Re: Dongle And Sigmira program ?

Yes, it does support the dongle. I suggest reading the manual. I wasn't very fond of it myself but to each their own.

You might want to consider checking your Device Manager too and look and see if there is more than one driv...

Otherwise you can just download zadig from here - https://zadig.akeo.ie/ This version from the website is newer tha...

Re: SDRAngel and windows 10

I put it in the Program Files folder, not the Program Files (x86), and it works fine for me on my Windows 10 Pro 64 bit PC. This is with SDR#, SDR Concole V3, HDSDR, and CubicSDR installed as well. Their shouldn't be any conflict with SDR# or any other SDR software at all.
