Standalone WinUSB installer for XP? KB971286

Recommended Posts

See https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971286

This is supposed to be installed along with other support software for some USB devices. Well, unless you happen to have already plugged in some USB device where the manufacturer has included this for XP, you get problems like this from companies whose products are supposed to work on XP but have problems due to *their* failure to include WinUSB.

MSDN has some info on installing WinUSB without a custom inf, but it still looks to me as though it needs some special extras to shove it into XP for generic support of devices that require it but don't include it. I did manage somehow to update the IDs on those crypto miners, but I forget now how I did... May have had to resort to software not from Silicon Labs. (Gave up after the mining pool I was using decided to copy MTGOX by taking the data and running.)

How about Windows-KB975599-x86-intl.exe ?
