Windows 11 Driver for Raspberry Pi Pico Reset Device

Dear Community,

within my projects for the Raspberry Pi Pico, I usually use the Serial-over-USB function, provided by the SDK. This function works fine.
When using the USB-Serial function, the Pico also provides an additional Control Endpoint, which allows to bring the RP2040 directly into Bootsel mode, without using the Bootsel-button.
I am using this option to directly copy the uf2-file to the Pico, under the condition that my code has compiled successfully.

So far I have been using Windows 10, where the Pico was recognized as "RP2 Boot" device in addition to the COM-Port for the serial communication.
Now, I am trying to setup my toolchain on a Windows 11 Computer. The Serial Port shows up and works as intended, but the "RP2 Boot" device does not show up. Instead I get an unrecognized "Reset"-Device (green marked in the picture):

My question is, if there are some drivers for Windows 11, I am currently not aware of??
Or is there a different solution to get the "Reset" device recognized as "RP2 Boot" device - as it should be?

Thank you very much and have a great day!

Ok, I have solved the issue.

Solution to manually use the Zadig Tool (Link) and force to install the libusb-win32 driver.
In my case, I used version v1.2.7.3, but I guess other version are fine as well.

Anyhow, the device is now called "Reset (Interface 2)" and is listed in group of Atmel USB Devices, but the write to the Control Endpoint is possible to bring the Pico into bootsel mode without using the button.
