Hi everyone, I received today my RTL-SDR from Aliexpress, the usb stick is working on Android and Linux, but I can't get it to work on Windows 10.

Zadig is running as administrator, tried changing usb ports but nothing...
Also tried UsbDriverTool but it doesn't work...
How can I fix it?

Do you have an antivirus running that could be blocking custom drivers from being installed? Check your AV logs.

Otherwise there must be something corrupted or strange on your PC if neither Zadig nor USBDriverTool is allowing the files to be installed.

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.

Hi everyone, finally I have fixed after an "in-place" Windows 10 install.

With me the Zadig tool does not work at all with Win10 1903, latest update.

Looks like Zadig didn't download for you properly as it's 0KB.

Get it directly from https://zadig.akeo.ie

You're right! Didn't notice that :o
I deserve a headslap for that.
Thanks for pointing it out.
