Hi Pawel,

I'm not looking to buy another adapter, just unsure on how to set everything up properly. Waiting to hear more from Elias as what they were talking about sounds very interesting.

Hi Jordan,

Here you have good USB to RS232 cable. It works with Windows 10 (should even works without installing any drivers): https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00QUZY4L0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 <https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00QUZY4L0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1>

I don’t have much experience with Windows, but try to read separate topic (was something this morning) - nbk in the new millennium - and look at message from Elias. maybe he will can help you.

Most of the people use virtual machines.
