Is the Hexbright susceptible to problems with Windows' new FTDI driver

Is the Hexbright susceptible to problems with Windows' new FTDI driver that bricks chips that are not made by FTDI? If so does anyone have tips on workarounds for programming the Hexbright?(I was thinking that I could use a RasPi or a Linux machine but that is somewhat inconvenient.)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

No. The HexBright Flex uses Silicon Labs' CP2102 chip and is not susceptible to the FTDI counterfeit chip PID zero'ing issue that is present in FTDI's VCP drivers version 2.12
