Beware that Microsoft just downloaded a new version of Windows 10 to all 
computers running it.  Unless you have told your Windows software not to 
update it, it has downloaded a new "Prolific" driver which will not work 
and hence its's not your cable but your driver.  Go to Miklor.  There 
they will tell you how to prevent such overwrites of the old Prolific 
driver as well as provide a link which will allow you to install it over 
the new driver and prevent it being overwritten in the future.  Chris, N1CAK
