Windows 8 x64
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows 7 x64
Windows Server 2008
Windows Server 2008 x64

Windows CE.NET (Version 4.2 and greater)
Support for WinCE7.0 Initial functional testing conducted by FTDI has shown that the FTDI drivers function as expected on Windows CE 7.0
Support for older versions of Windows Desktop
NOTE: Microsoft have ended support for certifying XP and VISTA through their WHCK test program. As such current builds will still work on XP and VISTA but are not Microsoft certified.
Differences in Driver API
For most of these operating systems two types of driver are available: Virtual COM Port (VCP) drivers and direct (D2XX) drivers. The VCP driver emulates a standard PC serial port such that the USB device may be communicated with as a standard RS232 device. The D2XX driver allows direct access to a USB device via a DLL interface.
To locate the drivers you want to install for a device, select which of the driver types you wish to use (VCPor D2XX) and then locate the appropriate operating systems. With the exception of Windows 98 and Windows ME, all devices are supported in each driver package.
If a VCP driver is required for Android please refer to the following application note: TN 132 Adding FTDI Devices VCP Driver Support to Android
