I'm not sure I understand the question? On Windows 10, Mac OS, Linux and Chromebook you don't need drivers as long as the firmware is up to date (eg. any Espruino board sold in the last 3 years or so). Older boards can be updated in just a few seconds and only have to be done once.
If Windows refuses to recognise an older device firmware then there's no way the IDE can even tell that it's plugged in - short of installing a native application that might be able to search Windows for devices that haven't installed correctly (but I have no real idea where you'd start on that).
