The biggest problem I have it with the USB to serial port adaptor; it appers that some/all Prolific chips are not supported. Tried all the suitable drivers available at their web site to no avail, so I'm about to throw the towel and move to a FTDI choice.

Does anyone know if the FTDI unit will be compatible with the PIC programmer used for the Clonix/NoVORAM?? Needless to say that and the CL serial link are amongst my most important applications and I need them to work!


I had similar experiences when starting working with W8. I had another cable, from FTDI (this one: US232R-100 - Premium USB - RS232 Serial Converter Cable) that I had used with severan devices (from Hi-Lo multi IC programmer to multimeters, oscilloscopes... even an HP48G) and seems to work on W8 (although in this enviroment I have only tested some specific boards based on 8051 or PIC MCU's).
