State of configuration files for WinLIRC: 2. September 2003.
The most important Program - WinLIRC makes it possible to receive the remote data. Here is the site of the developer: http://WinLIRC.sourceforge.net/
We recommend to check the free scripttool Autohotkey, which also talks to WinLIRC.
Brings a lot of ways to control the PC. Huge user community - many configurations
for program controls. Recommended for all willing to spend a little more
time with the matter. For the installation the IgorPlug.dll file (Newest
version from the Igor
HP ) is placed in the Girder\Plugins\Hardware Dir. Then in File /Settings
/Hardware Plugins / Igor SFH-56 device /Settings, set Input Signal=DCD.
We experienced that IRAssistant runs WinLIRC only since Windows 98 -
not with Windows 95.
