You may have gotten a dud.  Could that possibly happen with E-bay??
I've tested mine on my desktop which runs XP Home and it works fine.

N1MM Logger also needs these drivers to utilize the ports with Windows 
XP.  The easy one is "port95nt.exe".  Since it's
an executable, it installs the drivers in one easy step.  The other 
install (that the help file in N1MM lists) is a zip file and the drivers 
must be installed manually.
Have both plus updated drivers for the F5U103 both for Win 95/98 & XP if 
anyone wants them.
