  1. Make sure that the software and adapter are using the same COM port

  3. Look for a conflict with a another program or device
  4. Try a different program to verify adapter functionality

Does your adapter work on every computer?
In our experience the adapter works on a majority of hardware for the supported operating systems. There are cases where the adapter will not work with the existing hardware or software.
What if my serial device has a male connector (with pins)?
Our adapter ships with a 9-pin male plug. This is the same connector found on the back of computers with a serial port. If your serial device also has a male plug then you need to use the supplied 9-pin gender changer. This is a double ended female to female connector that will allow you to plug your device into the adapter.
