Just for clarification here:

There is no conflict between CHIRP and Prolific devices. Since the
prolific device is the most prolific (pun intended) it is the most often
copied, and thus there are a *lot* of copies, fakes, and broken drivers
floating around out there. In most cases, a flaky driver or device will
not work for the OEM software, much less CHIRP.
