USRP, GNU Radio on Windows

Hi,

     I just entered into the world of GNU Radio. I bought an USRP + WBX
+
LP0410 (400MHz - 1GHz). I managed to install GNU Radio (v. 3.2.2) on a
Windows
XP SP3 (with MinGW, msys, numpy, wxpython and others), but what to do
from now
on? What I want to do is: I made some modules (PIC microcontroller +
433.92 MHz
transceiver) and I would like to make a basic communication between
those
modules and the USRP, to send a few bytes, so nothing complicated from
modules
point of view, the problem is with the USRP and GNU Radio.
   I tried to start example scripts from the gnuradio-examples
directory but no
success, are not executed, a command line window is opened and it is
closed in
the same time. Anybody had such kind of problems. Anybody has some
advice for a
newbee, where to start, a link where is explained step-by-step for those
like me
what should be done. Till now I have a GNU Radio installed, a USRP
connected
through USB but how it’s connected, what should be the next step. It’s
hard till
I get the idea, how it’s working.
   I hope that anybody could help me with only a few ideas, I don’t
want to
bother you with my questions, it’s only a small question after GOOGLEing
for
these informations and not finding anything usable.

   Thank you very much for any answer. I wish everybody a nice day.

Best regards,

Florian,

Welcome. Unfortunately, your next step will be to upgrade to GNU
Radio 3.3.0 or later. The WBX was released after GNU Radio 3.2.2 and
therefore will not be supported by your GNU Radio installation.

Hi Jason,

  thank you for the reply, I updated the GNU Radio to version 3.3.0,
but there
is not working. If I want to start a script by double clicking the cmd
line
window is opened and closed and nothing happens. The USB driver is
installed,
everything seems to be OK but it’s not.

Open an actual command window and run the command using that. You
should be able to see output from the scripts that tells you what it
is wrong.

Hey,

This may seem like a dumb suggestion but have you tried running the
scripts
from the command line to see why they’re failing? Start with something
simple like dial_tone.py (from the python/audio subfolder in
gnuradio-examples). I’ve never used minGW, but I had no problems getting
GNURadio installed and working with cygwin.

Hi Jason,

yes I tried running a script from command line and it says: 

“ImportError: No
module named gnuradio”. I want to tell you that for installing the whole
needed
packages I used a python script “gnuinstall.py” and it went quite good.
My first
installation was with cygwin, but I couldn’t install GNURadio. The
biggest
problem is that I couldn’t found any tutorial that could explain the
whole
installation process (what paths has to be set, etc.). I’m really very
surprised
that there hasn’t been made any Windows installation package, maybe I
will make
one but now I have to understand what’s the problem with all these
paths. Anyway
thank you very much for any idea you and anybody may have regarding my
problem.

Best regards,
Szalontai Levente.
