I downloaded the latest Windows installer for GNU Radio at http://www.gcndevelopment.com/gnuradio/downloads.htm
and installed it. But I can't get it to connect with my RTL-SDR dongle. Whenever I click the button to run the graph I created with the GNU Radio blocks, it stops after a couple seconds, and displays no error at all. Here's a screencap of what my graph looks like.
And here's the full text in the console from running the graph.
Code: Select all
Executing: C:\Program Files\GNURadio-3.7\gr-python27\python.exe -u C:\Users\Ben321\Documents\top_block.py
gr-osmosdr 4d83c606 (0.1.5git) gnuradio 126.96.36.199
built-in source types: file osmosdr fcd rtl rtl_tcp uhd hackrf bladerf airspy redpitaya
[INFO] [UHD] Win32; Microsoft Visual C++ version 14.0; Boost_106000; UHD_3.14.1.HEAD-0-g5491b80e
Please let me know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks in advance.

I would say you have to open the rtl_source box and add a line in the Device Arguments field like
rtl=0 or other info.

I had the same problem. The fix was to use an older version of the windows installer:
Latest/broken version: v188.8.131.52/v1.6
Working older version: v184.108.40.206/v1.3
Alternately, the user Mazilla suggested the following:
Try to set 'Device argument' in 'RTL-SDR Source' to 'rtl=1'
Here was my post about it:
