Trying to passthrough USB devices to a Windows 10 VM. One works without issue. The other shows the device cannot start (code 10).

I'm trying to passthrough a USB HDMI capture device, as well as an old MCE IR Blaster to a Windows 10 VM that I setup. The devices are shown when I do lsusb:

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 058f:6362 Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Card Reader/Writer
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 534d:2109 MacroSilicon
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0a5c:21f1 Broadcom Corp. HP Portable Bumble Bee
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0471:0815 Philips (or NXP) eHome Infrared Receiver
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
I passed through both devices using USB Vendor/Device ID. The USB HDMI Capture card is recognized in Windows and works fine.

The IR Blaster however doesn't seem to work. In Device Manager, I can see there is an error with it. The device status shows:

This device cannot start. (Code 10) Current device power state cannot support this request.
I have checked and the correct drivers for the device was installed. I have also tried different ports and trying to passthrough the USB port that the IR Blaster is plugged into. Neither had any effect.

Am I doing anything wrong? This is my first time trying to do USB passthrough to a Windows VM.
