HERE IS THE SOLUTION I FOUND!
If you are also having a similar issue, you must make sure that you install the drivers in the correct order!
1.) Before doing anything, even before installing Universal Control, plug in your interface and let the default windows drivers install. You will get an error message saying some parts failed, but this is normal.
2.) Install UC and the appropriate drivers, and if you do it in this order, it will essentially be completing the partially failed installation before you installed universal control, thus fully installing the driver.
Hope this helped anyone else who has this same issue!
