      Hello group,

      Still under trial period with Parallels desktops 8, i keep going on to sort out how to make communicating otwincfg.exe thru USB connection (COM 2 port). XP wise, i have exactly the same configuration on a real window XP desktop and on the virtual machine running XP on the Macbook Air. Native under OS 10.8.4 i can access via iserial app and CMD line the OTUSB, so the Macbook Air communication with the OTUSB is verified. Having a Keyspan USA-19QI, i installed in the virtual machine the driver (COM 4 port) and connecting the adapter to the OTUSB serial connector, otwincfg came alive like on the real PC desktop. So my guess is that the problem come from the INF driver…
      To make sure that other USB connections are working with the virtual machine, i installed the drivers (COM 3 port) for a prolific 2303 USB/serial adapter and i am able to run a GPS utility app reading the GPS mouse status and datas… so it seems to be a compatibility problem between Argent Data's INF driver and Parallels Desktops virtual machine…

      Any ideas?

      73, Cyril
