I bought a usb to serial adaptor from ebay some time ago, I need to use it with something and when I try to install it, nothing happens, nothing is displayed in device manager.
The instructions tell me to do this.....
double click HidCOMInst contained the INF fils and driver derectory.Nothing will
appear.then plug the usb device,You can setup by the winzard.
Under some circustances,Windows Xp fails to load the HIDCOM driver,and instead loads
the Windows HID driver for the device.In this case,follow the steps below to force
windows to use the HIDCOM driver.
1.Open up the device manager.
2.Find the Human Interface Device Key related to USB to Serial and right chick on it.
3.Select Update Driver
4.Select"Install from list from specific location" and click Next
5.De-select"Search removable media",Then select"Include this location in Search".

8.Select"SemiTech USB-HID->COM device" and click Next.
