Windows 10 Driver Problems

Hi Jason.

I have Flirc generation 1 for a long time. Now I would like to reconfigure Flirc, but I cannot make it working on Windows 10 20H2. I installed latest version of Flirc installer 3.25.4, but it looks like no drivers are included and app shows disconnected. I tryed install driver by Zadig utility, but also after successful installation shows app "disconnected".

Thanks for your response.

Kind regards.

I've encountered the same issue after installing flirc gen1 on my new device after a while of not using it.

Flirc-Setup-3.25.4.exe does not install the driver so I installed the old one from the sticky topic.

Flirc-Setup-3.25.2.exe installs fine but the old issue with inability to update firmware 3.11 -> 3.12 popped up back again

Flirc-Setup-3.25.4.exe installed on top makes flirc unrecognisable again. This is a mess with a long history.

Is there a chance to finally sort it out?


Here is the link to the firmware problem:

I have a similar situation. I have a Flirc Gen 1 with firmware 4.9.3. I am running Windows 10 latest version.

When I downloaded the Flirc software, I apparently got 3.25.4. When I do a check for new version, I tells me that version 3.25.5 is available, but after the download and upgrade, I still have 3.25.4.

In the log file, it says that Gen 1 devices are not supported.

I found the forum article about Gen 1 support. From there I downloaded the 3.25.2 version of the software. I installed it and it complains that it needs firmware 4.1, which seems older than what I have. I cannot say for sure if 3.25.2 works or not. It is good to know that there is no intention of discontinuing support for Gen 1 devices.

Anyway, at this point the most important issue for me is that I want to know what a certain button on my remote actually sends. I there a way to find out? I suppose it is somewhere in the Flirc configuration file, but unfortunately that is not human readable (like f.i. a .xml file).

To fix the Flirc driver issue on Windows 10, try these steps:

1. **Update Driver Manually:**
   - Open Device Manager.
   - Find the Flirc device with the driver problem.
   - Right-click and select "Update Driver."
   - Choose "Browse my computer for driver software."
   - Point to the folder where the Flirc drivers are stored (you may need to download them from the Flirc website).

2. **Reinstall Flirc Software:**
   - Uninstall the Flirc software completely.
   - Restart your computer.
   - Download the latest version of the Flirc software from the official website.
   - Install the software and restart your computer again.

3. **Check for Windows Updates:**
   - Make sure your Windows 10 is up to date.
   - Go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates.

4. **Use Compatibility Mode:**
   - Right-click the Flirc installation file.
   - Select "Properties."
   - Go to the "Compatibility" tab.
   - Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select Windows 8.

5. **Contact Flirc Support:**
   - If the above steps do not work, contact Flirc support for more assistance.

These steps should help resolve the driver issue with Flirc on Windows 10. regard capcuttemplate
