USB to SERIAL adapterLocked
I have a Compaq legacy free iPaq. I am trying to connect a usb to serial adapter as all it has are usb ports. The OS (WIN 2K Pro) sees the adapter when I plug it in and allows me to install the drivers but it never becomes a usable port. The OS always sees a problem (with the usb port)and says that the drivers are not installed. Vendor support could not give me an answer either. I have tried to create a virtual serial port to connect to the usb port but WIN2k always deletes because the OS sees nothing connected to the adapter (because of the problem with the newly added usb adapter). Seems a catch-22 to me.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
