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 know this is an old thread but still wanted to post that choosing the com driver manually works! This is using console cable usb to mini usb on a catalyst 9300 connecting to my terminal pc running windows 8.1. Took me a long time to find this thread hopefully someone else will find this useful and quicker than I!
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?
