Daisy - Windows Toolchain

The steps on the Daisy Wiki worked for me. I also needed to set up Zadig (see Daisy - Zadig ).

I use Git Bash for running make. Running make in a normal Windows command prompt fails due to some calls to mkdir -p in the Makefile (-p is not a valid arguement for the Windows mkdir). After the first run of make in Git Bash, make will work correctly from Windows Command Prommpt.

I spent some time trying to get Windows Subsystem for Linux up and running (both WSL and WSL2). WSL will not work currently; it does not suppot USB (there is an issue open on GitHub - Microsoft GitHub - [WSL 2] Attaching an USB device ).
