It is not that right either for Windows. To use libftdi under
Windows, you will need the libusb-win32 device driver
(the filter driver may work as well). To use libftdi-1.0
under Windows, you will need to change the default
FTDI driver to the WinUSB driver. libusb0.sys and
winusb.sys are real kernel driver under Windows.
Maybe something like this:
"Error xyz. Make sure the default FTDI kernel side driver is unloaded."

usb_detach_kernel_driver_np() is only meant for Linux, it is
not for Windows, Mac OS X or BSDs.
libftdi - see http://www.intra2net.com/en/developer/libftdi for details.
