1) Download a driver (Ex. Prolific usb to rs232) 2) Right click on the setup and choose troubleshoot compatibility or run it as a program that is compatible for earlier version of windows. 3) Install Driver. 4) Restart Computer. I just tried this and it worked but make sure you restart computer.
- Apr 20, 2017 Starting in Windows 7, Microsoft has replaced the kernel mode component of the Windows Vista USB driver stack (Wpdusb.sys) for Windows Portable Devices (WPD) with the generic Winusb.sys. Microsoft provides the Wpdusb.sys driver to manage portable.
- Download Prolific USB to Serial Driver for Windows 10 7 8 8.1 Vista XP 64/32 Bit.
- USB to serial drivers for most serial RS232 devices. Download drivers for most types of USB to serial adapters and converters.
- The USB standards include serial port. Sorry I forget what that part of the standard is called. Windows has driver support for that built in. Problem is a lot of USB chips, FTDI for example, don't use that standard, they do their own thing over USB. As a result you end up needing drivers.

Chances are the chipset in your converter is not compatible with Windows 10. You need a Prolific 2303HX Rev.D chipset. Auto download of the driver is available but without the chipset it won't work. Good Luck!
Yes, I believe you are correct that my chipset is not compatible with Win10. Obviously obtaining a new adapter would remedy the issue. However, late at night or if you do not want to be bothered with obtaining a new adapter for something you very infrequently use, downloading the 18.104.22.168 driver dated 2009, installing the driver and rolling the driver back to this 2009 driver for the comm port your connecting the outdated adapter to, does allow you to finish your work without delay.
What I was doing with the Serial/USB adapter was programming a new Motorola two way radio so it could be used in our network. This is a task is something done very infrequently. Finding a way to use my existing serial/USB adapter allowed me to accomplish what I needed to do without waiting to find an adapter supported by Win10.

Hope this helps others that may also be in a bind. I have since, at my leisure, purchased a new Serial/USB adapter supported by Win10 so I can use the programming cable necessary to program any new radios we obtain in the future.
