    Enabling Irda in Windows 10 (Infrared Remote Control)


    I have an Infrared Remote originally designed to use with Windows 7 MCE. Only recently I noticed that it had stopped working and so I started some research on the web to find the solution. To cut a long story short I found this technical article which appeared to be the solution:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...0-version-1511
    It only applies to Win10 version 1511. It so happened that I was having a lot of other problems relating to corruption of my installation of Windows (Ashampoo Burning studio was refusing to work properly and crashing) so decided to do a reinstall and follow the above article immediately afterwards. I now have Win10 version 1511 installed. I have a lot of updates to install but am quite prepared to reinstall to go back to ver 1511 to get this to work.

    I managed to follow the instructions as far as enabling Irda in an elevated command prompt and got the ".../done" response for both commands. However, when I tried the next step of "flushing the updated configuration information to the registry" (step 2) There was no "IrDA network device" under Network Adapters in Device Manager.
    I even followed the same steps again using the hidden system Administrator account thinking this may be some sort of permission problem. That didn't work either.

    Now I am stuck. Is there anyone out there who can a suggest anything to help please?

    :)

    Windows 10 IrDA-Stack Software Update Release??

    Subject: Windows 10 IrDA-Stack Software Update Release??



    Hello to who may be reviewing this message:



    The original release of Windows 10 operating system (OS) did not include infrared capability – Missing the IrDA-stack.
    Other related Microsoft communications indicate that they are intending to reintroduce infrared functionality as an end user OS update.



    Please provide the targeted Windows 10 IrDA-stack software update release date.
    If infrared capability is already available, please provide the Microsoft release number and/or OS build number.



    Thank you,



    Regards,

  3. USB driver for Windows 10

    IT DOES NOT WORK!

    There is no longer ANY support for infrared. MS has removed it.

    No amount of clean installs and re-installs will fix it. MS needs to put support BACK.


    Windows 10: Infrared IrDA-Stack is removed

    Lack of IR support will be a deal changer for a lot of people that use it.

    From the MS link you provided, there are something you may have mist, I don't know:

    There are two separate CMD's and not one! It must be don in a Admin CMD prompt (two of them).

    You must off cause install the driver first, before doing anything and the IR plug-in.

    I do not have any experience with IR remote and W10, but chances are, that if you get it to work - it will possible work
    all so in a updated version of W10, if update from with in W10. (Let it update it self!)

    Thanks Gordon7 but I didn't miss it. I entered each command separately and pressed enter after each and received the"...Done" notification each time suggesting that the commands had been successful. However the Irda network was missing in Device Manager.
