I just bought this converter from Radio Shack this morning and I couldn't get it to install according to the instruction that came with the product.
I placed the CD-ROM that came with the converter in the CD tray. And then connected the converter to one of the free USB ports available. The computer sensed the new device. Then, I directed the computer to search for the driver found in the CD-ROM (in my case...the "D" drive) under the "Driver" folder. It found an "INF" driver and in no time tried to execute a file named "ftdiunin.exe". After 10 seconds or so, a pop-up window came up with the following message, "Set-up cannot copy the file ftdiunin.exe."
I tried this 5 times with no success...and I am not ready to give up yet.
I am using a P3 laptop powered by Windows XP SP2. I intend to use the converter to control my rig IC-706, if I could make it work.
Any help or suggestions how to resolve this problem is appreciated.
