The tools NAWinConfig and NAWinTest are for testing Node Adapters and not USB attached AMBE devices like the ThumbDV.
Open the program "Device Manager" and go to the COM/LPT list. Plug the ThumbDV in and see if a new "USB Serial" device shows up and note its number, e.g. COM4, and unplug it and see if it disappears from the list. If it appears and disappears, your computer is seeing it.
Go to WinDV (be sure you have the beta 1.5.8-x from DUTCH*Star -- you have to ask for it) and select the ThumbDV and configure it to use the COM port you see in the list. (DVTool has not been modified to support ThumbDV)
If the ThumbDV not showing up, it's possible that the driver didn't install. You will note on the http://nwdigitalradio.com/thumbdv-and-dv3000-resource-page page there is a link to get the drivers directly from FTDI.
