Is the Nexus driver required on the OS to run HID attacks?

I'm running nethunter on a Nexus 5 and have had a lot of success with the DuckHunter HID attacks on most systems I've tested it on, but I've found that it does not work if the OS does not have the
automatic download and install drivers from the internet enabled. When I plug in my phone, the installing driver for Nexus 5 message pops up in the system tray and then I get an error stating that Windows could not install the device driver and HID attacks will not work.
