Windows - sigrok Windows Usb installers


From sigrok

We provide nightly Windows installers for sigrok-cli and PulseView (require Windows XP or higher). Please test and report any issues you encounter.



In order to use libsigrok (via a sigrok frontend) on Windows, you need to install the proper driver for the respective device.

COM/serial/RS232 driver

If your device is connected through a (virtual) COM port, libsigrok doesn't need a special driver. Please install the driver as provided by the manufacturer. If you are unsure, you can check if your device appears at the "Ports (COMLPT)" section of the Windows Device Manager.

Device specific USB driver

The device specific USB driver shipped with the vendor software is not going to work in almost all cases. You will need to install the WinUSB driver.

For installing the WinUSB driver you can use the Zadig executable from the libwdi project. There are two versions, one for Windows XP (zadig_xp.exe), and another one for all other (Vista or higher) supported Windows versions (zadig.exe). Both 32 and 64 bit Windows versions are supported.The sigrok-cli and PulseView installers ship with both Zadig executable files for convenience and they're available from the Windows "Start" menu (the Zadig *.exe files themselves are located in the installation directory of the respective application).

If you already installed the vendor driver previously, you need to run Zadig and switch to the WinUSB driver (see above). There's no need to uninstall or deactivate the vendor driver manually, Zadig will handle all of this.

Note: For some devices (such as the Hantek 6022BE, for example) you might have to assign the WinUSB driver via Zadig twice: the first time for the initial USB VID/PID the device has when attaching it via USB, and a second time after the firmware has been uploaded to the device and the device has "renumerated" with a different VID/PID pair.

See also the Zadig wiki page for more information.


The Windows installers ship with all firmware files that are either open-source or where we have permission from the vendor to distribute them. Some devices will need other firmware which we cannot redistribute though. See the wiki page for the respective device on how you can extract those firmware files from the vendor's software.

You'll need to copy the extracted files into the firmware subfolder of the respective installation directory of sigrok-cli or Pulseview, e.g. C:\Program Files\sigrok\sigrok-cli\firmware or C:\Program Files\sigrok\PulseView\firmware.

Example files

The Windows installers ship with example dump files (from our sigrok-dumps repository), which are located in the examples subdirectory of the install directory of sigrok-cli and PulseView.

These files can be used to conveniently test various frontend features and protocol decoders, and so on.

Limitations and TODOs

See the list of currently known Windows issues in Bugzilla.


I cannot start sigrok-cli or PulseView: error Oxc0150002

This happens if you don't have the Microsoft Visual C 2010 Redistributable Package installed. Usually this is already installed on most machines since various other software packages also need this. If you didn't yet install it (or no other software package automatically installed it for you) you will see the Oxc0150002 error and sigrok-cli and/or PulseView will not start.

The root cause for this is that the above download will install the otherwise missing file msvcr100.dll (and possibly others) which is required for running sigrok frontends. The requirement is imposed by python34.dll to be more specific, which we use/need for running protocol decoders.

Please download the Microsoft Visual C 2010 Redistributable Package and install it, that should fix the issue and allow you to start sigrok-cli and/or PulseView.

My device is not found or usable (USB/driver/firmware/hardware issues)

If a libsigrok frontend such as sigrok-cli or PulseView doesn't seem to find your device, that could have multiple reasons:

  • You need to place the proper firmware and/or FPGA bitstream file(s) for your device (if any) into the respective directory where the frontend expects them. See above for details.
  • You need to install the correct vendor driver and/or use Zadig to assign the WinUSB driver to your device. See above for details.
  • Be careful into which USB port you plug the device. Windows assigns drivers to USB devices based on their serial number, and as a fallback (if the device doesn't have a USB serial number) it assigns drivers per USB port. That means (for example) that if you assigned the WinUSB driver using Zadig while your device was attached to a certain physical USB port, that assignment will not be available when you plug the same device into another USB port! You'll have to do the WinUSB driver assignment again (using Zadig) for that new USB port!
  • If you use certain inexpensive FX2-based logic analyzers, please do not use the USB cable that they shipped with. Those USB cables seem to be of a consistently very bad quality and cause all kinds of strange issues. Use another USB cable of which you are sure that it is working well.

Building from source

Note: This should generally not be necessary for users, please just use the provided nightly installers (see above).

Cross-compile using MXE

If you really want to build from source, we recommend you use the sigrok-cross-mingw script from the sigrok-util repository (that uses MXE) to cross-compile the Windows binaries on a Linux system.

Native builds are generally not supported by us! Yes, they can work in theory (see below), but it means a lot of hassle compared to a cross-compile using the above script, and native builds are not really well-tested by us.

Native build using MSYS2

If you do want to build the sigrok subprojects natively on a Windows system (instead of using the cross-compile method, see above) we recommend you use MSYS2. More information is available on the MSYS2 introduction and the MSYS2 installation pages.

Please read our README for details on how to set up MSYS2 in general, how to install the sigrok dependencies, and so on.

Then, use our sigrok-native-msys2 script to build all required software components.


  • This is still work in progress, not all parts are fully working, tested, or supported yet. Patches welcome!
  • Working: libusb (special branch), libserialport, libsigrok, libsigrokcxx, libsigrokdecode, sigrok-firmware, sigrok-firmware-fx2lafw.
  • NOT yet working: libsigrok Python/Ruby/Java bindings, sigrok-cli, sigrok-cli NSIS installer, PulseView, PulseView NSIS installer.
    • Currently, the main missing parts in MSYS2 are static builds for libzip and Python. Once those are available, we should be able to build all sigrok subprojects natively via MSYS2.

Native build using the old MinGW MSYS

Not supported by us. Please use one of the methods described above.

Native build using Cygwin

Not supported by us. Please use one of the methods described above.

Native build using Borland/Embarcadero C Builder

Not supported by us. Please use one of the methods described above.

Native build using Microsoft Visual Studio

Not supported by us. Please use one of the methods described above Additional Files

How to Install Windows 7 with only USB 3.0 Ports


Do you have a Windows CD or DVD, but can’t use your optical drive to install the operating system (OS) on your new computer Or maybe you’re concerned about CD/DVD rot and just want to create a backup.

Instead of a disc, you can use a USB drive to install Windows. Flash drives are smaller, have more storage, and can be used to install multiple OSs — if you use the right technology.

Here is how to create a bootable USB drive How to Create Windows 10 Installation Media How to Create Windows 10 Installation Media Regardless of how you arrived at Windows 10, there's a way to create your own installation media. Sooner or later you might need it. Let us show you how to be prepared. Read More , instead of using a Windows CD.

Benefits of a USB Drive

There are several situations where USB drive installation media is beneficial:

  • You can easily create backup installation media.
  • Significantly faster installation rate vs regular installation media.
  • Keep original installation media in pristine condition.
  • Easy to carry multiple operating systems on a single USB drive.

Our relationship with Windows CDs and DVDs has changed, too. For instance, Windows 10 is available for sale on a USB drive. Discs are still available but are no longer the only method of installation. Furthermore, newly purchased hardware usually comes with an OS pre-installed. Consequently, some users never actually use or even see installation media.

Copying Your Disc with WinToFlash

USB drives are all very well and good, but you still need a copy of your Windows installation disc. In the past, it involved manually copying files, opening the process up to mistakes. However, we can easily automate that process using WinToFlash. The WinToFlash Personal Edition will create a bootable USB 10 Tools to Make a Bootable USB From an ISO File 10 Tools to Make a Bootable USB From an ISO File Installing an operating system from a USB drive is quick and portable. We test a few ISO to USB tools to find the best one for you. Read More directly from your Windows installation media.

Download and install WinToFlash Personal Edition. Once installed, open WinToFlash. You will have to accept a EULA, and view a non-intrusive advert. Open the Advanced mode tab.

Select Transfer Windows Vista/7/8/10 setup to a USB drive. Set your Windows setup file path. Next, select the USB drive you’d like to install to. Finally, press Run.

Please note the selected USB drive will be formatted during the process, so back up any important files!

WinToFlash also has multiboot support. You can build a customized bootable USB drive filled with Linux distros, recovery disks, and other handy tools. The only limit is the size of your USB drive.

Head back to the Advanced mode tab and select Create Multiboot USB Drive. On the next screen, select Add. This opens the Add new item panel. Like other multiboot USB drive tools, WinToFlash has a long list of potential tools. Scroll down the list and select a tool.

The option to Download selected ISO now will appear. Choose this option to download the latest version of the selected tool or OS. Alternatively, you can select and add ISOs already stored on your computer.

Complete your selection and select Run.

Please note that WinToFlash Lite will only allow two ISOs on your multiboot. I’ve curated a comprehensive list of multiboot USB tools How to Create a Bootable Multiboot USB for Windows and Linux How to Create a Bootable Multiboot USB for Windows and Linux A single USB flash drive is all you need to boot, install, and troubleshoot multiple operating systems. We'll show you how to create a multiboot USB, including Windows and Linux installers and recovery tools. Read More that do the job much better, and without restriction.

WinToFlash is great for making a bootable USB from your physical installation media. But in this day and age, many users eschew the traditional and head straight to the internet, keeping it digital.

The Microsoft Media Creation Tool has made the process of downloading Windows ISOs that much easier. Accordingly, the Media Creation Tool automatically downloads an ISO to your specification, eliminating the need for copying physical media to your computer, then onto your USB drive.

Windows 10

Download and run the Media Creation Tool. Accept the licensing agreement. Select Create installation media for another PC.

Next, select the language, edition, and architecture of your OS. The Media Creation Tool offers recommended settings. However, if you are downloading an ISO for a different system, you may need to change these settings.

The next page has two options: USB flash drive or ISO file. The latter creates an ISO file from the details entered on the previous page. This can be installed to a USB drive using alternative software, such as Rufus. In this instance, select USB flash drive, then Next. Now, choose your USB drive and create the installation media. It will download the latest version of Windows 10, so it could take a moment.

I find downloading an ISO extremely handy. Then I can create as many USB installation drives as I want without having to complete this process again. I’ve given a short tutorial below on how to create Windows installation media using Rufus.

Windows 7/8.1

Please note there is a separate tool for Windows 8.1. It follows a very similar process to the one detailed above.

Those searching for a Windows 7 ISO must have their license key at the ready. Head to the Windows 7 Disc Images page and follow the instructions.

A Quick Rufus Tutorial

I’m going to quickly show you how to create a bootable USB drive using Rufus. Rufus is a handy tool that “helps format and create bootable USB flash drives.” It is very simple, and gets the job done — a great combination!

Head to the Rufus website and download the latest version of the utility. Once downloaded, run the program. Under Device, set the USB drive you’d like to install to. Next, select the small disc icon and browse to the Windows ISO you would like to create installation media for. Set a new volume label if you desire, but it isn’t necessary. Select Start, and let Rufus take care of business.

Can I Boot From USB

This is a very common question. It is largely system specific but can be altered by the user via the BIOS. This is controlled by the boot sequence.

Your system will usually seek to boot from wherever your OS is installed. The drive containing your main OS will be the first option in the boot sequence. It is possible to manually override this, instead of booting from a USB drive containing new installation media.

BIOS configurations are different for each manufacturer. I would suggest searching the internet for “[hardware manufacturer] BIOS tutorial/boot sequence.”

Ready to Install

You’re now ready to create a bootable USB drive for Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 How to Make a Bootable USB, CD or DVD to Install Windows Using an ISO File How to Make a Bootable USB, CD or DVD to Install Windows Using an ISO File Need installation media to reinstall Windows In this article we'll show you where to get Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 installation files and how to create a bootable USB, CD, or DVD from scratch.
