What if you install it on the composite parent, using the instructions in the original post?

The only option in the drop down menu of Zadig is what you see in my screen capture. I followed the instructions of the original post or at least as close as Zadig would allow me to. How does one install it on the composite parent when no such device appears in Zadig?

I see the exact same issue as impaired-driver (usb_open error -12 with a Device Manager Code 10 failure: "An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function." The Events tab shows the Kernel-PnP error:
Device USB\VID_0BDA&PID_2838\00000001 had a problem starting.

Driver Name: oem13.inf
Class Guid: {88bae032-5a81-49f0-bc3d-a4ff138216d6}
Service: WinUSB

Upper Filters:
Problem: 0xA
Problem Status: 0xC000000D
impaired-driver, were you able to get past this problem?

Did you guys also try using this alternative tool to Zadig? https://visualgdb.com/UsbDriverTool/

Zadig hasn't worked for me ever since the 1903 Windows 10 update. This tool worked just fine though.

RTL-SDR Dongle will not work in Windows 10 , only works in Windows 7 x86 , not 64 bit and the old driver years ago worked with XP SP3 X86 and 64 bit but does not work with new drivers, the old drivers (XP) are no longer available and I tried Win 10 without any luck on 3 different windows 10 x64 with 2 of them and 1 was x86 which momentary worked until reboot then messed up my Wi-Fi Drivers removing them. I also heard it works OK on Android with the correct driver but to me the dongle is worthless since I only use it for Windows 10. I guess I will hold on to it and hope software comes out in the near future. (4-9-2021) or try to return it and get my money back from credit card company .
