Should the USB Console drivers work with Windows 8 64-bit? I've installed the WIn 64-bit drivers and when I plug in a USB console cable I can see in Device Manager it attempting to create an endless number of COM ports? Thanks.
Yea, problem still exist, unable to get USB Console drivers to work in Windows 8-32/64-bit, tried everything possible no joy. It's about time the Cisco devloper's come to the party seriously!!!
I have installed VMWare and loaded Windows XP mode, only then got Cisco Console driver to work! Windows 7-32/64-bit work's no problem, but Windows 8 being released on all new notebook model's Cisco will need to ammend the driver's

I was able to get this working on Windows 8.1 today by installing the Windows 64 bit driver. after that I saw a COM port that had an error. I found the process below on another post.
On device manger, under the properties of the defective
I got the one here to work with windows 8.1 Cisco_usbconsole_driver_3_1.zip https://software.cisco.com/download/release.html?mdfid=282979305&flowid=2621&softwareid=282855122&release=3.1&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest
Actually the com port is listed now so I thought it was going to work, but I can't get hyperterm to open the com port. What software are you using?
I have Installed Windows 8.1 recently, and I have discovered that the the Manufacture name (Cisco) is not on the list. So can you please tell me how to add (Cisco) on the Manufacture list?
It seems like I've been trying to figure this out forever. Thanks! That worked for me on Win10. I can finally ditch that bulky serial adapter!
