Hello, I am having a problem with drivers for a Serial to USB converter.  Running Windows 2000.  I plug everything in and install the drivers from the drivers cd.  It asks me to reboot and when it restarts I try to install the parallel printer and it can't be detected.  The printer is a Zebra 2742 thermal printer.  The printer worked on an older PC with an on board parallel port.  There is also a Word document on the install cd, it seems to be some kind of instructions.  The file is called windows2000.doc and its contents are:

Winnt\Inf\usb2ser.inf
Winnt\Inf\serport.inf

Winnt\Inf\Oem*.inf ( * is mean an number, you must to check the content of title weather usb2ser.inf or not, if it is, please delete it )

Winnt\system32\usb2ser.sys

Winnt\System32\serport.vxd
