Windows 7: USB/serial adapter driver

USB/serial adapter driver

I'm a new guy in this forum and I hope someone can help me.

I've recently bought a laptop with windows 7 home premium 64 bits. I've tried to use a usb/serial adapter (Lindy rs232) but everytime I start the software I need (Vemco's VUE) the computer shuts down. I've tried updating the driver for the usb/serial adapter and also use different usb ports. So far nothing worked. If I connect the usb/serial adapter and check the com ports everything seems to be working fine. When I start the software (Vemco's VUE) it works properly until I connect the usb/serial adapter.

I used the same setting (software and adapter) in an older laptop running XP and everything worked great.

Any advices?

Incompatible software...

Try A) A different program for the same purpose or B) running that program in XP compatibility mode... Right click -> Properties -> Compatibility.
