Perhaps the old .inf could be modified to remove support for the VID_0403&PID_6001 (8bit FIFO), in deference to the new driver (including virtual COM ports - VCP & direct USB access via a Dll - D2XX)
The '8372' is an embedded serial port on a FT8U100AX USB1.1 Hub:  http://www.ftdichip.com/Products/ICs/FT8U100AX.htm

A newer driver is available to support such devices (v1.00.2162):  http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP/Win98/R10906.zip  big_smile
However; it is not WHQL certified.

Better yet, here is the latest WHQL driver (v1.00.2176) to handle those legacy devices (hidden on FTDI's site!):   http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP/Win2000/R2176.zip   big_smile
In this case, the PID num's 6001, & 6010 (x2) should be commented out (driver v1.00.2176). 

Thanx.  smile

Re: [IMPL] Chipset - FTDI USB2 serial drivers

Wow! Thank you so much for this info. The printer AURA-5200 is now working but isn't showing up in the Devices&Printers folder under printers but is rather seen as a "serial <-> usb" in other devices. How could I make it visible for programs like MSWord and XL and be able to print docs from them as well as from specialized POS programs.

Please save me, man:)!!
