 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Does anyone have any experience with Vista and the FTDI cable. I was
trying to troubleshoot a student's computer with the labels in French
so I was really confused anyway, but it seems the whole virtual
serial port options have changed considerably. The "Set RTS on close"
checkbox was nowhere to be found. Any idea where this option is, or
if it still exists. I couldn't seem to get reset to trigger
successfully.

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me with this.

Please excuse the cross-post with hardware troubleshooting topic, I'm hot to get this resolved.

An XP machine I have told me that Microsoft have an FTDI update... but you have to ask your machine to check the OPTIONAL hardware updates to see it.

Maybe that would help? May not even address "your" FTDI issue. Don't know. Hope it does!

The problem turned out to be easy - and my student eventually found the updated panel in Windows to set the serial port. Most of the confusion just resulted from me working with a French version of Vista. I still haven't really had time to look at the English version.

So I guess the postscript is that there is no real problem here - just keep poking around until you find the panel for the serial port settings.
