Your Perseus may work with other programs such as Jaguar or the Perseus native because they are 32-bit programs, SDR Console is always a 64-bit program when running on a 64-bit operating system. The perseus drivers are different for 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

USB Hardware

The Perseus 64-bit drivers work on some USB hardware and not on others. If you can't get your SDR started join the user community and ask other Perseus owners what USB card they are using.

Sadly there is nothing more that can be done without new 64-bit drivers for the Perseus.

64-Bits, Driver 2016a1

August 2016: Users are reporting that the 2016a1 update is working well.

The update for 32-bit and 64-bit systems is here:


Drivers for Windows XP through to Windows 10 are here:

Note: the Perseus Control dll on is only for 32-bit systems, if you are using a 64-bit operating system do NOT copy this file into the program folder.

New Drivers

( note: I have not had time to test these drivers myself.)

Hello All,

I've recently updated the Perseus drivers for the Microsoft Windows OSs.

These new drivers support both the 32 bit and the 64 bit OSs version of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10. (Please note that Windows XP is not supported by this distribution).

The new drivers are signed as Microsoft requires, therefore their installation on Microsoft 64 bit OSs should be quite straight-forward and does not require anymore tools like Zadig.

Please note that I've tested this distribution only on a couple of W10 64 bits operating systems and no installation tests on 32 bit systems has been done yet.

There should not be any issue with them (afterall it's just a signed distribution of the Microsoft WinUsb drivers) but I discourage to install them unless you really know what you're doing and you would like to give me an help with your tests.

Of course any feedback would be really appreciated.

The new driver distribution is available here: 

There's an installation guide with pictures created during the installation on a W10 system but I guess that installations on other platforms should not be really different.
