I think the one I had was defective and got another one, slightly different brand. It required the older driver that is still available on the FTDI site. The installer is easier, but if you manually update the FTDI device driver, you will also need to manually update the USB bus driver - both from the properties of the item in the Windows device manager...
The latest VCP win driver appears to have a problem. All I get on it when I loop back is 00 (hex)Use the older version and it will work - 2.08.24
