Windows 7: USB/serial adapter woes.

31 Mar 2011   #1

Win 7 Home premium 32bit
USB/serial adapter woes.

I have a new Home Premium laptop, and I am trying to get it to work with a USB/serial converter(FTDI chip).

Windows recognizes the adapter, assigns a COM number, and device manager says it's working ok. I loaded the latest driver.

The software (2 different programs) that uses it says it can't open the port. It all works great on my XP box.

Any suggestions?

TIA, Mike
