Yes. Some people have successfully run Gnuradio under Windows. Most
people are using Linux as it is better-supported. The installation
process might not be as straightforward as under Linux. The Ettus UHD
drivers work on Windows.

Asking specific questions ("when I do X it gives Y instead of the
expected Z: here are the things I tried, and here are the relevant
configuration files") will probably net better results than "has anyone
else gotten it to work". Good questions tend to get answered, and
specific bugs brought to our attention tend to get fixed.
