Targus PA-088 USB To Serial Port Adapter Cable & Windows 10

less than 1 minute read

For reasons that will soon be documented, I needed my trusty old Targus PA-088 USB to Serial Port Adapter, in Window 10 (yeah yeah, I know…).

Targus PA088

Unfortunately, Targus seems to have stopped supplying any drivers for this device - the most recent one on their site being from 2011.

After some searching I came across a long thread on Bretts Web Hacks, where I found links to drivers by other companies that use the same hardware internally.

In the end the driver from Magic Control Tech works fine - just search for “Serial”, or use this direct link
