So two problems:

1) It looks like you are not finding devices. The only thing you need to
deal with is uhd. Even libusb is statically linked into uhd, so you dont
even need to install that. Gnuradio and its dependencies are irrelevant
to this.

This installer has been confirmed working on windows 7 machines:

ALso, you will also need to install the usb driver:

>From your email, it looks like you did those things. When you run
uhd_find_devices, the driver will actually load a firmware image and
reset the USRP (if this is the first time it was powered up). You should
see the device disconnect and connect when this happens. Anything like
that happening?

I can't think of what else would be the issue. Are you running from a
virtual machine? Windows 7 VM + USRP has been personally giving me bad
luck. What OS do you have? I think XP will work, but I don't think
anyone has confirmed it.

2) As far as the gnuradio cmake port goes. I need to build a new
installer that will be ABI compatible with the current UHD releases. It
might be now but I'm not sure. If you figure out the usb issue, I can
put together a new installer pretty quick. In the long run, I want to
integrate it into a CI system to build everything automatically.

Another issue is that the instructions on my personal wiki are not too
clear. They should be updated, and maybe on the gnuradio wiki, but thats
up to the gurus.

So, if you use the binary installer, you only need the dependencies from
here: http://www.ettus.com/downloads/gnuradio/other_deps_with_installers/

The other directory is only needed if you are compiling gnuradio:
