To use your analyser with the Sigrok software you will first need to install a driver. To do this you can use the Zadig driver install utility which is downloaded with the Sigrok Pulseview software:
1) Connect your analyser to the computer using the supplied USB cable. Windows will complain that it cannot find a driver but just ignore this message.
2) After downloading and installing the Sigrok Pulseview software the Zadig utility can be found in one of the following paths:
C:\Program Files (x86)\sigrok\PulseView\
3) Run the Zadig utility by double clicking the zadig.exe executable. Note, if you are using Windows XP then run the zadig_xp version instead.
4) The Zadig utility should now open up. In the drop down box at the top of the window you should be able to select the analyser. It will normally be listed as 'Unknown Device #1'. If you don't see it listed then go to Options->List all devices and try the drop down box again. You can confirm that you have the right device selected by checking that the USB ID text box is showing the correct VID and PID (1D50 & 608C). Also make sure you have WinUSB (v6.1.xxx.xxxxx) selected for the driver version.
5) Click the 'Install Driver' button. This will automatically install a driver for the analyser. You can now close the Zadig window and run the pulseview software.
6) Disconnect the analyser and reconnect it before running pulseview. In Pulseview the analyser should appear at the top of the window as 'sigrok FX2 LA (8ch)'
