Hello group,

I just received my USRP b200 circuit board:-) . I thought that I would 
start with known software for Windows 8.1 64 bit. I downloaded 
uhd_003.008.000-release_Win64_VS2013.exe from the ETTUS website and ran 
the installation. It installed to "Program files (x86)\UHD". When I 
tried to set the file path to "all users or current users" I get an 
error "Warning! PATH too long installer unable to modify PATH!". The 
[path >path.txt] from the command prompt, is 639 Hex characters long or 
1593 in decimal. Excluding 0xd 0xa (EOL). Ignored the error. Next 
installed "ExtIO_USRP+FCD+BorIP_Setup.zip". It installed to "Program 
files (x86)\hdsdr". The program HDSDR was previously installed and used 
with the QS1R receiver using it's own EXTIO dll file. The QS1R extio dll 
was deleted before installing EXTIO_USRP to avoid potential conflicts. 
During the installation, zadaig.exe activated.
Since UHD.dll is already a driver do I need to use zadaig? The device 
manager indicated "Westbridge" when the USPR B200 is plugged in, it 
changes to B200 after running "uhd_find_devices.exe". I get the same 
device hint problem if zidaig is run or not.
What files is EXTIO_USRP looking for?

What am I doing wrong?

Any help is greatly appreciated,
