Hm. I never tried Windows. But this does not make much sense to me.
The Os just has to select a device configuration to allow it to draw 
power. This does not mean it has to have a driver for it.
I'm pretty much sure my linux server which i sometimes use for charging 
does not have any driver whatsoever for this device. But it charges nicely.

Strange. But however, it is windows...
