CodeWarrior USB-to-Serial Problem

Good Morning,

I am trying to use a Prolific USB-to-Serial adapter with CodeWarrior (version 5).  My processor is an MC6868HC908KX8, and the board programs properly on other computers with serial ports.  Unfortunately, I am now using a computer with USB only.  CodeWarrior will not recognize COM6 (the USB-to-Serial adapter).  I have installed all available patches and updates for both CodeWarrior and the USB-to-Serial adaptor.  I have also tried refresh.

Interestingly, this same Prolific USB-to-Serial adapter worked until I changed my hard drive and reinstalled CodeWarrior.  COM6 used to appear in the list of COM ports, and I successfully programmed an earlier revision of this board (the revision was extremely minor – jumpers were added).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
