I have purchased a programmer marked as SP200SE. I have downloaded a .rar file which contained a driver for Windows XP and an application. The driver instalation appears in the "Programs" in the start menu "PL-2303 USB-Serial Driver" and in the System > Hardware > Devices > Other devices as USB2.0Serial shows an error.

When you run the application it works and is in English but shows the error "failed to connect". I can't find any thing that helps on the Internet. Is there anyone there with a solution?

The driver might not be installed properly, therefore the error shown as Failed to Connect. This could be due to compatibility of the driver with the version of Windows you're currently using.

Try forcing a manual installation. Go to Device manager and right click the item then choose Update Driver. Point the driver installation window to the folder with the INF files, or choose the INF file manually, then continue with installation. While installing, Windows will give you a warning if the driver hasn't been properly signed to be compatible with the version of Windows that's currently running on your computer.
