i am running my laptop on win xp.
i have attempted to load in a cable from my usb to a serial port to connect to a serial port.
this worked on my old pc under win98 and was realiably informed by a usually reliable source that this would work....low and behold it wouldnt as the driver wouldn,t work in xp.i have tried to uninstall the old driver via device manager and the system shows it has gone!.however when i load up a new xp usb cable it wont work as it says a simalr device is using the usb facility. anyone know where i can find the old driver to zap it into oblivion so my new one will work
