That should just install it automatically and then ICS adapter will be recognized the next time it is plugged in. The adapter is usually the last COM device in the list. So if you have a COM1, COM3 and COM6 it would be COM6.

The other Windows drivers on the page are for manual installs from a zip file. You may need to manually install the driver if the setup executable does not work. FTDI has instructions on doing that here:

FTDI Install Guides
Ok, I have tried to manually install the driver. As I was looking through the installation guide. It says this:

5.4 Driver will not install on Windows 7 x64
Windows 7 x64 OS will only allow certified drivers to be installed. The certified driver supplied by FTDI will work with VID 0403 and PID 6001 for FT232 and FT245 devices. It will also work with VID 0403 and PID 6010 for FT2232 devices and VID 0403 and PID 6011 for FT4232.
If you have a product where the manufacture has customised the driver but has not re-certified it, then the driver will not load. You should contact your vendor to determine if they will support Windows 7 x64.

I'm not sure what all this means, but it sounds like this driver thing might not work because I have 64bit windows. Is this the case? I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Thanks for all the help so far.

still struggling with this. It still won't let me install the driver. I think it is because I am running a 64 bit version of windows. Is this the case?

My laptop is 64 bit win 7, and working fine. All I can suggest is to retrace the steps above carefully. If a step doesnt seem to work right, bring it back here. Lets try to figure out at what point the install is confusing or not working.

Just to verify everything I just went through this process on a new copy of Windows 7 64 bit.

First I plugged in the USB ICS cable. At this point if the driver is not installed you will see a device in the Device Manager under the Other Device category, in my case called TTL232R-5V but it may be a different name for you.

After plugging in the cable I downloaded FTDI's certified Windows driver installer using this link: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM20814_Setup.exe

Then I ran the downloaded driver, it took maybe 30 seconds to run on my computer and then vanished when it was done. After the driver ran I checked my device manager and could see a USB Serial Port under the Ports category in the Device Manager.

The most important part is to plug the cable in first and then run the installer for the driver. This is what worked for me on Windows 7 64 bit.
