<1> Section 2.2.1: The server-side implementation of this protocol is applicable to Windows 7 Enterprise operating system with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows 7 Ultimate operating system with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows 8 Enterprise operating system, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1 Enterprise, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016. The client-side implementation of this protocol is applicable to Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows 10.

<2> Section 2.2.9.1.3: The field MaximumTransferSize of USBD_PIPE_INFORMATION is ignored.

<3> Section 3.1.2: The timer is implemented only in Windows 8.

<4> Section 3.3.5.3.9: If a device responds with a Request Error, Windows issues a single-ended Zero Reset. This ensures that the device recovers if it enters an unknown state.

<5> Section 3.3.5.3.9: To verify that the request has retrieved an OS string descriptor on Windows:

  1. Examine the Signature value to ensure that it corresponds to a valid Windows OS descriptor string signature. If Signature does contain a valid signature, Windows does not parse the descriptor any further. Version 1.00 has only one valid signature: 'MSFT100'.

  2. Extract the version number from Signature and verify that the descriptor has the correct length for that version.
