Prolific USB-to-Serial Driver

Has anyone found a version of this driver to work on Windows 7?

Thanks!

I found it with a web search. If I remember right, it was on the Prolific web site. Of course, it was not for Windows 7, but if memory serves, I set it for XP or Vista and it installed OK.

Bye.

Did you set the installer for XP or Vista compatibility? I'm pretty sure I had to do that. I also set for Run As Administrator.

Yes Vista Compatibility and set to run as Admin. The installer runs then about 15 seconds after it appears to be finished I get this error:
Can't copy INF file.
Failed to Install

Thanks!

When you try to install it manually and tell windows to search online for driver, it doesn't find it? For me it installed that way. Anyway, I zipped the driver ,you didn't say for what you are using it, so I don't know if it will work for you, but ,you can try to install manually it from this folder, just unzip
