i.MX 8MQuad EVK Win 10 USB to Serial Console Drivers

Has the FTDI windows virtual com port drivers indicated in the " i.MX Linux® User's Guide, Rev. L4.9.88_2.0.0-ga, 05/2018
" been found to work for a Windows 10 host?

 

See excerpt below from page 3 in the document referenced above:

 

The i.MX 6 SABRE-SD, i.MX 6SoloLite EVK, i.MX 6SoloX SABRE-AI, i.MX 7Dual SABRE-SD, i.MX 6UltraLite EVK,
i.MX 6ULL EVK, and i.MX 8MQuad EVK boards connect the host driver using the micro USB connector. The USB to
serial driver can be found under
www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm.

 

My experience is that the CP210x virtual com port drivers from Silicon Labs at the link below must be used instead of the FTDI drivers:

Is the documentation incorrect?
