i installed a fresh copy of windows vista premium today onto home brew pc in an origenae S16T case with an IR211 IR Module.
vista ultimate went straight out to download all the updates from microsoft then updated itself.
i then installed the windows media center tv pack 2008 rc0.
i then installed the latest version of IRtrans from the irtrans website.
i did not "unplug" the IR211 from the USB header before the installation and then plug it back in after the installation.
i get exactly the same symtoms as this guy (except an updated version number in the error):http://www.htpcnews.com/forums/index.ph ... ntry172517
if i unplug the IR211 and then run the irtrans usb application i get a different error. i cant remember exactly what error it is, but it is different and says something about not being able to find an IRTrans module on a USB hub.
if i go into device menager i can see IRTrans installed fine. the driver version dates 2007.
if i try to update the driver it says my driver is already up to date.
i cant force a particular driver becasue i only have an setup.exe file. i dont have the standalone drivers.
if i uninstall IRTrans from within device manager, then uninstall IRTrans software via Programs and Features and then reinstall IRTrans software and then re-enable IRTrans from within device manager, it reinstalls the drivers for the IRTrans unit but does not change the date of the driver (2007).
can someone please tell me why i am having so much trouble with this IRTrans unit?? is it faulty?
