Unable to try out the device as regardless of the method for installation of the windows driver for Win pro 7, the install always comes up saying it aborted. Software is horrible.

Brian L, Customer Support
Thank you for sharing your review of our ICUSB232V2. We're very sorry to hear the device isn't working as anticipated. It's possible you have our ICUSB232 which looks similar but requires a different driver for it to function. If that driver doesn't resolve the issue, please reach out to us via live chat at chat.startech.com. We have Technical Support Advisors available 24 hours, 5 days a week.
