Sure it will.  Plug the cable into any Windows computer and it will show up in device manager as a USB to Serial device or whatever. No need for any drivers for Windows to see the cable.

It just won't WORK without the drivers. 

@Clarence It doesn't matter, the cable will be recognized by Windows regardless of whether the radio is attached to it or not.

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.
