Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

Is anyone running Windows 7 other then me? or is everyone using Windows 10? I am wondering if Windows 10 has some kind of a change in it that is causing issues. I am going to have to build a windows 10 machine possibly in order to test with. Yeah, I'm using Windows 10, and I would assume most are a...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

you can actually run EG from the backup location and do not need to uninstall the test version at all. Ok, good to know. I will have to try that next time. @Crowley This error The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request. I believe is because of anoth...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

There is the latest test build of EG few posts above. My method of testing is backing up eg appdata/programdata and the tree and then installing the test version. When I want to go back to normal, I un-install the test version, restore everything and Install the normal version back. Also you need to...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

You will no longer need things like this....you will be able to put a receiver and a blaster in each room if you want for < 10.00 USD each. I already started working on an IR over IP device and network protocol and one that is able to stream as the code comes in. No 100.00+ USD globalcache devices ...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

I do use an IR extender with blasters, I wonder if that has an effect. But, with how it is currently I get mostly correct button presses from the old service & plugin. Few odd wrong or unknown ones every now and then. Edit: Ok, there is one weird thing with this button with the old setup. It seems t...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

Remember being in the Administrators group is NOT the same as running an application with elevated privileges. There are lots of things that even an "Administrator" is not able to do. The only thing that will allow you to do to is to actually be logged in using the "Administrator" user account. thi...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

Of course, no problem. That's what the testing is for after all. Just reporting the problems I encounter. Strange that it worked at first, but now even clean install bugs out. Can't test much currently.

Just curious, is there any downside to running EG with elevated privileges?

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

Ok, I had time for just a quick test now, I can test more later. What kind of feedback are you looking for? One thing I noticed, you have to start eg as admin for the new plugin to be able to see the receiver. Right now, the button presses and log output put is somewhat laggy, but I guess this was e...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

I was wondering if there has been any progress toward this. My eventghost config is working really good, the unreliability of MCE remote commands is the weakest link.
