USRP1 support in UHD depends on libusb-1.0, which currently only has
windows support in beta form. Therefore, I would only recommend using
USRP1 with UHD in windows if you're willing to deal with experimental
dependencies. Until the windows backend in libusb becomes stable
(hopefully in the next few months), most USRP1 windows users will be
better served by the gnuradio driver, which uses libusb-win32.

Hopefully, in time, timestamped sample support for the USRP1 will be
added to UHD. In the meantime, USRP1 features in UHD and GNU Radio are
identical, though with different host side implementations.

Perhaps you could mention what specific problems you ran into while
installing GNU Radio?
