Install the driver, then go to Device Manager and roll the driver back to 3.2.0.0.   Windows won’t roll it back on its own.

If you have it set to install updates automatically, or the OS is Windows 10, then Microsoft has probably replaced the driver with a different one that doesn't like the cable.  This typically occurs with cables that use the Prolific USB-serial chips.  Many cheap cable use clone chips that newer drivers detect and will ignore because they aren't Prolific chips.
