Prolific USB To Serial Adapter (F5U103v) Driver for Win 7/8/8.1

Device ID: USB\VID_067B&PID_2303&REV_0300

When I first attempted to download the driver from the website I overlooked that there was a warning about some specific chipsets "were not compatabile" with Windows 8/8.1 and was presented with the following message in the Device Manager:

"A device which does not exist was specified."

PL-2303HXA and PL-2303X are not supported under Windows 8/8.1 and hence this error was being returned. Although using an older version which you can download here, you can uninstall your present drivers and manually choose an older version of the driver that works with Windows 8/8.1

Upon installing the driver, restart your computer and you should be good to go!
