WinLIRC allows you to transmit and receive standard infrared remote control signals.
This allows you to control your computer using almost any standard infrared remote
control. It also allows your computer to control other equipment which uses these
signals (stereo equipment).
WinLIRC is the Windows equivalent of LIRC, the
Linux Infrared Remote Control program. WinLIRC (through version 0.6) was originally
written by Jim Paris. Later releases are written and maintained on sourceforge, by Ian Curtis.
Jim chose to build his receiver inside of a DSub hood. Click
here for a picture of Jim's receiver.
Ian chose to build a simple infrared reciever that connects to his sound card. Details here.

again if your registry is corrupted (and you reinstalled Windows).
- replaced standard CListCtrl. Now you can change the action in-place...
added an Edit-button to edit the button assignment
