Adafruit FT232H not showing serial port in Windows 7 Device Manager

If there is no Ports (COM & LPT) – USB Serial Port (COM6) in the device manager, but you have installed the FTDI driver – see if there is Universal Serial Bus controllers – USB Serial Controller.

Enter it, go to Advanced and check Load VCP – an unidentified serial port will appear, now choose Update driver. Unpack the FTDI driver (if you downloaded the .exe file from FTDI website – change the extension to .zip manually and unpack it into a directory) and use it for an update.
