Default BioAnalyser 2100 upgrade cable

Has anyone successfully used a non-Agilent USB to serial adapter successfully and can share the part #?

We are upgrading our BioAnalyser 2100 computer and HATE to spend almost $180 on the recommended (supported) adapter # 5188-8031 when look-a-like cables are $10. If we have to spend the money, OK, but it seems excessive.

I have a follow-up question regarding this - are you able to just remove the license from the old machine and add it to the new PC? We've wanted to upgrade ours for a while.

We are the process of doing the Win 10 upgrade. I'll update if anything is odd, but about a year ago we swapped computers and re-installing the software again was smooth sailing. You'll need your original licence key for the install. Updated software is on the Agilent website, free.

I didn't even have to remove it from my old computer to get it to work on the new one
