As I mentioned before, libftdi-1.0 depends on libusb-1.0 which
currently does not support libusb-win32 device driver.
So you have to use WinUSB driver for your eeprom-new
branch which is based on libftdi-1.0. If you back port it
to libftdi branch, then it should work.

The libusb-win32 device driver is now more meant for
libftdi-0.18 or earlier. But hopefully the integration of
libusb-win32 kernel driver libusb0.sys to libusb-1.0
Windows backend will be finished within this year,
in that case, you can use libftdi-1.0 with libusb-win32
device driver or filter driver.
