USB to serial is Vista Compatible

We have recently recieved some calls from customers who are haveing problems getting the USB to serial, part number SW-1301, to work with Windows Vista.  The lastest driver is sometimes required for it to install and work properly with Windows Vista.  Here are some instructions on how to install the USB to serial driver on a Windows Vista operating system:

1 - Download the driver files for the USB to serial SW-1301

2 - Extract the files to a location that you recognize and will be able to find later.

3 - In the device manager (click start/Vista icon, Control Panel, Device Manger to access the device manger) right click on the USB - serial controller, which should have a yellow sign next to it, and click update driver software.

4 - A new window will pop up, click on “Browse my computer for driver software” and then click on the browse button.  Locate and click on the folder that you extracted.  Click ok and then next and windows should install the driver.

5 - Click finish and you should be set up and ready to use your serial device with Windows Vista.  (If you still have problems make sure that you have the driver for your serial device installed correctly.)
