I believe you have to configure the Virtual Machine hosting software
to allow USB passthrough to the host OS. I cam across this recently in
a Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJ0Mfuj0KUQ) which
was getting an ADF4351 board's Windows software working under Linux -
unfortunately I don't have a stream pointer as to how far in it was
but I think it was towards the early-middle
