Here's what the FAQ.pod of Device::USB says:

There is a port of the C<libusb> library to the Windows environment called C<LibUsb-Win32>. Because I don't have a development environment for testing this library, C<Device::USB> does not yet support this library.

Unfortunately I read this after spending half a day installing Device::USB and its prerequisites.

I found here a post of the author, that says, that only libusb Version 0.14 is supported:

However on I only find Versions 1.2.x, 1.1.x and 0.1.12.x.

I tried the Installation with first, then removed it again and tried with Both installations succeeded (once I had removed the in the distribution dir and moved the away).

Unfortunately, no USB devices are detected (although I have USB keyboard and mouse plugged in).

I need access to a proprietary USB HID device, but with Device::USB I failed.

Any further suggestions?
