    Hi,
    I am using one of these in W7 and have no problems. The driver I am using is
    PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_v1210 and the hardware is Belkin F5U 103v.

    New to the boards and trying to get a USB to serial driver installing on both Windows 7 and Vista for a device we use here at work. I've had no luck trying to get any of these installed as well as others I've found on the net. Attached are some screen shots for reference as these continuously come up no matter what I try.
    I'm hoping it's something I'm doing wrong so I can finally get this to work. Any help is much appreciated.

    EDIT: The Win7 system I'm working on is a 64-bit OS which I'm wondering may be part of the problem.

    May be you don't have administrator privileges. Try to execute setup with "RUN AS".

    The computer I was working on did not have admin rights, but I have them. Windows did prompt for my administration login but that was all.
    I've successfully downloaded these on Windows XP systems (easy enough right?), but I'm still having trouble w/ Vista and Win7.

    Thanks for the feedback, any other ideas?

    I'm quite certain I've tried that one (almost every single one here and others I've found on the net). No matter what I've tried, after every attempted/failed installation (and removing of the drivers) I received the above messages on each one.

    Still no luck on Win7 but seems like it's working on Vista [partially]. I'm wondering now if it's a confliction in the software of the device I'm trying to download the converter for.

    After trying many drivers, I downloaded the zip mentioned in this link:
    Akosta Innovations » Blog Archive » Problems with Prolific driver – Solution.

    It seems to install without problem on my Toshiba NB200 running Win 7 Starter. But I have not attached the RS232/USB converter cable to a RS232 device yet, as a final test.

    I gather the pl-2303 based devices are notorious for having driver problems.
