Windows 10 Pro 64
MCE Remote Plugin (NOT the Vista / 7 variety)
I've upgraded 2 HTPC's to Windows 10 and on both I get the following error on Startup and when I unclick, then re-enable "Disable HID Service" in the MCE Remote Plugin configuration:
EventGhost logs SOME of my Logitech remote's (Harmony 900) keypresses in the log. Specifically, and unsurprisingly, it logs the buttons that are mapped to actual Keyboard presses and NOT the buttons logged to Windows MCE Player (the remote uses 2 devices: Microsoft Keyboard and Microsoft Media Player - MCE, e.g. The Directional arrows are mapped to Keyboard Up, Down etc, the Play/Pause buttons are mapped to MCE Play/Pause).EventGhost: MCE Remote Plugin
The plugin was not able to change the state of the HID service. You must be logged in as administrator to change the state.
I'm guessing this isn't strictly an EventGhost problem but I was hoping someone on here smarter or better with Windows than I had the same issue and could point me to a solution. I thought maybe it was a Driver issue, but it's happening on 2 different IR receivers (one hard wired and one USB) and the receiver is still receiving the Key's mapped to keyboard presses so its def receiving some inputs. Also I read that the driver needed is automatically installed in Windows 10 and Windows Device Manager is reporting no errors and telling me the driver is up to date. The error itself obviously sounds like a permission issue, but my user is the ONLY user on the computer and definitely has administrator privileges (though, full disclosure, if I open up a cmd window some commands won't fire if I haven't right-clicked and opened as administrator, despite my user being administrator).
