HL USB RS232 driver

Hi guys

I purchased a HL USB RS232 (serial to USB adapter) and the drivers that came with it are not being detected by windows 7. Would anyone happen to have a link where i could find a working driver for Windows 7.

Thanks

Great Thanks, Now I can see it in the device manager

But when I put the USB-rs232 into my laptop nothing happens, there's no message like "you can use your USB now or something".

I tried it on my friend's PC (using XP) and it gave me this message.

right now you can see it in device manager, try updating the driver from there ,I'm not to sure wether you would get that message as what you are doing is emulating a USB port
