No all
im new to this forum so still figuring out things here. I have a 2018 13” MacBook Pro with touchbar and got a Vega 56 and razed core x. When used with a Mac with the Vega 56 on Mac OS X it works great and recognizing it with no issues. 

I have windows 10 on an external ssd which boots up and works fine without the egpu plugged in. When I plug it in, it just shows the windows logo on the laptop with nothing on the external screen. I tried to follow procedures on bootcampdrivers.com but haven’t had any success.

has anybody else gotten to work with success?

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

I have the mbp13 2018 running boot camp on an external ssd windows 1803 with the rx580 gaming box. The process I followed is like this

booted to windows
plugged the box
wimdowws did its thing and after a few minutes said that it downloaded everything it needed and I should reboot. 
Rebooting in windows the laptop screen stays with the windows logo and the login screen turns on on the ext screen
log in the gpu drivers are downloaded automatically and it all works
however sometimes it gets moody and freezes especially when there are too many Bluetooth devices connected or try to connect something in one of the usbc ports. 
I have played forza pes and dirt rally using a wireless Xbox controller with no major issues. 
I wlwys follow the same process and it works 9 times out of 10
