I have a Windows 7 Pro 64bit PC with SP1. I also have a genuine Microsoft Windows MCE receiver plugged into the USB ports. Unfortunately, I cannot get WinLirc to register any commands the receiver sees. Light does blink on the receiver, but that's all that happens. I do not have any "broken" icons in my device manager, so I believe that the MCE receiver driver is running.
If I set WinLirc.exe to run as Administrator, in XP compatibility mode, it will start and the grey light icon appears in the taskbar. When I send IR commands nothing happens. I've tried to monitor the IR using IRGraph, but all I get is a window with a blue background. This is using the MCEXP.DLL plugin.
If I set WinLirc.exe to use Vista compatibility mode, it won't even recognize the receiver when I choose the MCEVista.DLL plugin. The same happens when I run in native Windows 7 mode.
This is with the latest version of WinLirc - 0.8.7a
Is there a walkthrough available for us Windows 7 64bit users with the MCE remote to set up and troubleshoot WinLirc?
