Windows won't recognize the cable without the correct driver installed.

With the cable removed, you execute the driver to install it into the computer/
Then you plug it in.
It may not be detected as a serial port yet. There are pictures in the
guide for the two possibilities.
You then follow the instructions to select the newly installed driver.
Once the drive is selected the programming cable will be detected and
the port assigned.
It is all in the guide. You just have to follow it carefully step by step.
