    How to use USB-RS232_rar to connect serial devices to your computer

    If you have a serial device that you want to connect to your computer, but your computer does not have a serial port, you may need a USB to RS232 adapter. This adapter allows you to convert the USB signal to a serial signal that your device can understand. However, not all adapters are compatible with all devices and operating systems. You may need to install a driver or configure some settings to make it work properly.

    One of the drivers that you can use is USB-RS232_rar. This driver is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10. It supports most of the common chipsets used in USB to RS232 adapters, such as FTDI, Prolific and CH340. It also has a user-friendly interface that allows you to change the baud rate, parity, data bits and stop bits of the serial communication.

    To use USB-RS232_rar, you need to download it from this website and extract the rar file. Then, plug in your USB to RS232 adapter to your computer and open the Device Manager. Find the adapter under the Ports (COM & LPT) section and right-click on it. Select Update Driver Software and browse to the folder where you extracted the rar file. Follow the instructions on the screen to install the driver.

    Once the driver is installed, you can open USB-RS232_rar from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut. You will see a window like this:
