Let me know if you still get problems.
I just want to note that this also worked for me. My case was a little different though. After battling this off and on for several weeks, I finally decided to sit down and figure this out. Running Windows 7 x64, and I previously had several USB Serial drivers from the various USB-to-Serial adapter manufacturers out there.
After installing the Cisco driver (v3.1), everything showed up in Device Manager properly, but the difference was that under Ports (COM & LPT) it said "USB Serial Port" instead of "Cisco Serial". Per @Richard Primm's instructions, #12-15 I went in and did an update driver, then "Let me pick..." and switched it to Cisco Serial, then it started working.
Only thing I can think is that Windows saw another USB-Serial driver in there and thought that was better by default.
After wrangling around with my new VG310s trying to get the USB serial connection to work, I found your solution and it worked! Thanks for the info. I was wondering if I just had a stubborn machine. Turns out I was the stubborn one!
