windows 10 + Reprap NEO + USB Serial

This is more a note for myself when I have to install the printer again, than a blog post :-)

I have got a used Reprap NEO which I had to repair. After doing the hardware stuff I had problems installing the printer on my Win10 machine. A "USB Serial" device was recognized in the device manager, but no driver was installed and I couldn't find any info about the chipset on the manufacturer's website. (To be honest I was too lazy to open the device's case again :-) )

On my other laptop the printer worked immediatly, so I installed the same driver on my first machine.

This is my web search:

On this page I found the driver:

The printer is the device on COM4:
