You need to select the right com port. If you go into device manager, with the USB - serial adaptor connected, you should see it listed, along with the com port number, when you click on Ports (COM & LPT) as in the png image below. In my case, the adaptor is on Com27, but yours will likely be on a different port.

Then when you try to connect your gyro to the software, make sure you set the Com port to match the number shown in device manager.

On my laptop, I was struggling to get it to connect, but it worked after a re-boot, so if in doubt, try a re-boot.

Good luck!
On this program it tells me which com port its plugged into. If I switch it to 3 from 4 it shows the change in device manager and on the FBL program. How do you have 27 ports? I tried all 7 on my computer and it won't connect.
