Cable shows up in Device Manager as “Other Devices / USB Serial” with no COM port assignment identified and properties says “There are no compatible drivers for this device”.

It most likely either has a Prolific USB-to-Serial chip which will
require that you download, install and select the older Prolific
v3.2.0.0 device driver or a WCH driver which, since it didn't get
automatically installed by Windows, means that you need to download
and install the CH340 device driver.

The miklor.com website has links to the most common chip vendors
(FTDI, Prolific, Silicon Labs and WCH) Windows drivers and
instructions for selecting the Prolific v3.2.0.0 driver if that one is
needed.
