                  Follow the instructions. Install the driver then plug the cable in. Then it works. This works on an ASUS laptop with usb version 3 ports running windows 8.1. There is a pile of adapters next to me which have troubles with either one of these or the other. This is the only one I have found wighout a problem.

                  Comments about Gigaware® USB to Serial Cable:

                  The driver installation is a little complicated for windows 7/8. The driver's themselves are fine, it is the installer that is packaged with them that is flakey. It will work fine with w2k/vista/winXP but on 7 or 8 the installer will crash a lot. HERE IS HOW TO MAKE THE DRIVER INSTALLATION WORK in win7/8:
                  Unzip the file, go to the Vista folder, and right click the 'setup.exe' file and select properties.
                  Here's the magic: Select the compatibility tab, then select the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" check box and then select the 'VISTA' option from the menu below the checkbox. Click apply and then right-click 'setup.exe' again and this time 'run as administrator'. Enter credentials and the driver installation should complete successfully. Make sure the device is NOT plugged in when you install the drivers or the installation may fail.

                  I've run these up to the max allowed by the drivers (128kb/sec in windows, and 460.8kb/sec in linux) without transmission errors. That sort of thing is possbile due to the long length of USB cable leading to the adapter. Usually I can plug the DB9 directly into a device instead of needing a separate RS232 cable. (Note:Purchase a gender changer and a null-modem adapter with this and you'll be able to plug into anything RS232 with ease!)
