I tried this using Msys64 but get
hidio_windows.c:37:10: fatal error: ddk/hidsdi.h: No such file or directory
   37 | #include <ddk/hidsdi.h>
I can't find any package for mingw64 that has this file. There is a
hidapi, which uses hidapi.h..
It uses functions like
instead of
so it could probably be used fir the windows build.
