Customer just switched to Windows 8 but can not connect to scoreboard

Trouble found:
Older Prolific USB serial adapters are not compatible with Windows 8. Prolific has a test app that you can run to see if your serial adapter is compatible. search for it on the Prolific web site.
When the customer acquires a compatible USB serial adapter the scoreboard will work

Now waiting for customer to acquire USB Serial Adapter
