libusb-1.0.20 is used for the development kit. It is
recommended that you use Zadig to install WinUSB
driver for the development kit. You can also use
libusbK driver if you want to use both libftdi-0.1x
and libftdi1-1.x. Please do not use libusb-win32
device driver (libusb0.sys) since it does not work
well under libusb-1.0.20.

I believe it should still work with latest MinGW.org toolchain.
If not, please let me know. I have some problems with the
later version of MinGW.org and I think it is not as stable.
The reason I use this old setup is also due to the fact I can
build everything libftdi offers (including the test program
using Boost Unit Testing Framework) under Windows. I am
lazy to build Boost again myself and the other ready-made
Boost binary seems to fail to build the test program somehow.
The trend seems to go for MinGW-w64 project under Windows,
especially the MSYS2 distribution. I will build 32/64bit Windows
binary for MSYS2 when I have some time. I remember I can build
almost everything except the test program with MinGW-w64 (which
seems to have linking problem).
