    I have seen some of the cables don't work with windows 8. Try with different brand cables, the drivers usually doesn't have issue with it.

  • Which company's usb to serial are you using? Try to downlaod some universal driver if the manufacturer driver does not work. Everytime you install a driver that does not work. Uninstall the current one and reboot before you try to install a new driver. I have aten usb to serial and their driver is working fine on windows 7 professional.

  • There should be no problem using USB to serial cables in windows 8. I have successfully configuring cisco devices with USb to serial cables in both windows 7 and 8.

    Also, recently I have found driver for Mac as well and i am loving it.

     

    Might be your cables are not supported.

  • Hi.

    Please check if your USB-serial dongle is supported on Win8.

     

    I have an USB-serial dongle based on the Prolific PL-2303X that's not supported on Win8.
