sigrok-qt on Windows

Status

We intend to fully support all major operating systems in sigrok, including Windows. However, we're not quite there, yet. Various portability issues need to be addressed still. The tables below list the current Windows status of the various hardware drivers.

Supported

Logic analyzer Windows status
ASIX SIGMA/SIGMA2 Should work fine using libftdi + libusb-0.1-win32 (not runtime-tested yet, though).
ChronoVu LA8 Works fine using libftdi + libusb-0.1-win32.
Demo driver Works fine.

Self-extracting installers

Work in progress. We don't provide pre-built installers for sigrok-cli and PulseView right now, but will do so in the near future, when a few issues have been sorted out.

Drivers

In order to use libsigrok (via a sigrok frontend) on Windows, you need to install the proper driver for the respective device. The driver shipped with the vendor software is not going to work in almost all cases.

You can use the latest zadig utility (from the libwdi project) on Windows to install the respective driver. There are two zadig versions, one for Windows XP, and another one for all other supported Windows versions.

Devices where libsigrok uses libftdi will need the libusb-win32 driver, devices where libsigrok uses libusb-1.0 will need the WinUSB driver.
