I have a device that needs to run off a serial port, but obviously new PCs don't have these. I have a cable which has the correct serial port head on one end and the correct USB head on the other to connect to the USB port of the laptop.
This is a USB to RS232 lead.
I do, however, need to access the COM port from the relevant software. Does anyone know where I can download software or a driver to create a virtual COM port via USB?
