prolific driver doesnt work on Windows 8

I have a problem. My prolific driver serial to usb doesn't work. I have windows 8 64 bit. I have tried several things but not succeed. I have read that ther is a ser2pl64.sys 90Kb which will work but I cannot find it on the internet. Can anyone help me with this file. Thanks.

I finally succeed to get a working version again.

I have a Prolific USB/Serial converter. I had an older version that worked on Win 7 but would not work in Win 8. I bought a new model (with updated internal chip) and that now works in Win 8.

It isn't the driver, its the chip version, from what I found out doing google searches.
