PL2303 USB to UART Converter Board on Windows 11

I was using a PL2303 USB to UART Converter Board to go from a LSS servo to my PC. I “updated” my computer to Window 11 and now the Device Manager says it doesn’t support Win11. Is there a work around for this or do I have to go to another interface board?

It seems like the manufacturer (Prolific) of the chip has drivers for Windows 11:

There is also this article which might be of interest:

DOES NOT work on the board you are selling ( PL2303TA Chip) even using the update driver/tool that you point to.

Does not support Windows 11 for PL2303TA or PL2303TB chips

RobotShop is a reseller for WaveShare products. On the manufacturer’s page for that product, they indicate:

“Supports windows XP/7/8/8.1/10. If you need to use in WIN11, please purchase PL2303 USB UART Board (Type C)”

It can be found here: PL2303 USB UART Board (Type C), USB to UART (TTL) Communication Module, USB-C - RobotShop
