flirc.exe crashes upon launching


Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

I'm seeing the same behavior, though I'm running version 1.2.6. Like the OP, I'm on Windows 8.1. I tried uninstalling the Flirc software, rebooting, reinstalling it, and then reconnecting the dongle. No change. I would try force upgrading the firmware on the dongle, but alas, can't do that without the software! What's the next step?

The first time I connected 1.2.7 rc12 it mentioned a firmware upgrade.  I elected to install it.  The GUI immediately crashed.  Now any time I open the app it crashes immediately:

Please let me know how to fix this.  I haven't even gotten a chance to try it out yet.

Both the flirc.exe and the flirc_util.exe crash, the latter of which states 'Warning: cannot open usb device' and both create windows application log crash bundles that we can submit if it would help. Here's the text:

OK i actually made it through my issue by using that ZADIG utility https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200712548-Using-the-ZADIG-Utility by reinstalling the driver in the instructions in the post, then plugging the FLIRC to a different port.

 

I originally had it in a USB2 port on my MB then when moving it to a USB3 after doing that ZADIG driver reinstall, it actually worked without crashing.

Have the same issue. Win7 64-bit. Had the utility installed for one day, barely had the device configured. Moved my USB keyboard to the Kodi box (to test Ctrl+F12 suspend) and then re-attached it to a different USB port. That triggered Windows keyboard driver installation process and I guess messed up something in the USB driver chain. Tried re-installing, removing the driver and re-installing, different compatibility options and tried the ZADIG utility.
