 Billy, apparently you have the Old Proflic Cable, because the New FTDI cable is plug & play without messing with drivers.

First of all go to Miklor at Cables & Drivers - Prolific & FTDI and download the driver version of the Prolific Cable. There are instructions on the website on how to install it. This is the only way it it going to work. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Download the Prolific Drivers: (get the Zip version)
Prolific recommended for Vista, Win7 / 8 / 10  exe  zip   (32/64 bit)

Get the ZIP Version.

After you download and unzip it, rename the folder to Miklor 3200 or something you can remember, and make sure the files are in the folder.

Then RIGHT CLICK on THIS PC on your desktop and select Properties.
When the window opens select Device Manager
Go to your Ports (COM & LPT) and you will see the COM port with the error (or it may not have an error, just select the COM Port.)

Right click on it and select Properties.
Go to the DRIVER TAB and select Update Driver.
When that window opens, select the BOTTOM one that says:Browse My Computer For Driver Software - Locate & Install Driver Software Manually.
As soon as you click on that, browse to your Miklor folder with version and let it install.
Every time you plug that cable into a different USB Port, it will be assigned a different COM Port.
It's easy to change a COM Port, go to back to your COM Port in Device Manager and Right click it and select Properties.

Go to the Port Settings Tab at the top, click Advanced in middle of page, then click on COM Port Number at the top that is NOT used (or one you are used to using).

I walked you through it the same as I have done many times before I got a FDTI Cable.
The FTDI Cables are about $20 on Amazon and they are a lot LESS hassle!
Let me know how things are going..... Good Luck!
