View USB device descriptors on Windows

I have occasionally fired up a Linux virtual machine just to view USB descriptors of devices using lsusb -v. This post briefly describes a couple of tools for Windows that can be used to view descriptors of USB devices.

Thesycon USB Descriptor Dumper

This single purpose utility, from a German device driver development company, does what it proposes. It lists all connected USB devices and dumps the information for the selected device.

This tool is part of the Windows Driver Kit (WDK) and Debugging Tools for Windows. Its source code is available as part of the Windows driver samples GitHub repo.
