Are there any updates for IREdit to allow it to work on windows 10?

IREdit version 1.3.79.0 installs on windows 10. BUT hangs when trying to load. Are there any workarounds or fixes

    There's a few threads about the "proper" install process in the forums. Running fine on Win 10 here - and never had an issue that I recall.

    Ian, are your Window 32 of 64 bit? I've had marginal better luck with 32. With either, any attempt to cut and paste within the edit area immediately faults to the desk. On 6 different installs. I am beginning to suspect it's not just me.

    64 bit. To be perfectly transparent I tend to only open it in a class these days for demonstration purposes but even back in the day I don’t recall any major frustrations creating IR files from imported hex codes.

    And to clarify “back in the day” was 3 years ago with a 64 bit Win10 VM on a MacBook Pro which continues to be booted up regularly.

    Yes, it often allows me to make an IRL from hex codes, but to cut and paste within or between files is 100% fatal on all my and our dealer's WIN10's. I've had to make many a file for other dealers on my XP laptop.

    Are you dealing with an IRN or an IRL? What's the size of either?

    Both, either, any size. Even a single entry. Highlight, control-c or right click CUT (or copy!), boom.
    "An unhandled exception has occurred in your application...."

    The crazy thing is I recently (within the last 4 months) Installed IREdit on my Win 10 x64 machine and it runs just fine. Cut / copy / paste / save as....all works. Not just appears to work, but actually works.

    There should be exception details. Feel free to shoot them to me or post them here.

  • John NagyJohn Nagy CineTouch Product Manager Posts: 1,427

    No details. It's not a WIN10 dialog, it's coming from inside IREDIT, with and XP styled box. Just says "An unhandled exception has occurred in your application...." then asks if I want to continue or quit. Both do quit, no number or references. I'd post the image but it seems that will only work on the new forum if I host the image. Since you can't delete or edit after one hour, I don't want to post into my dropbox for perpetuity.

    I had previously run into an issue running IREdit, but after reading this thread I thought I'd give it another shot. I downloaded and installed all 3 IREdit files from the new AMX website and it appears to work just fine (cut/copy/paste) in Windows 10. I did have to run each installer in "Win XP SP2" compatibility mode with Administrator rights, the install programs refused to run otherwise.

    One problem I did run into is if I left a file open when I closed IREdit, moved the file, re-opened IREdit, it pops up a dialog box you can't see because the splash screen is in the way. You can alt-tab to it, use the keyboard to hit OK, then the splash screen clears and the program appears to work as normal.

    Maybe this is just more anecdotal evidence that IREdit can work in Win 10, but I'm sure there are some fragile dependencies there (such as .NET 1.1). Since NS4 has the "IR Data" tab, I stopped using IR Edit to peek inside files, and thankfully, I haven't had to capture IR from some new device in years.

    That's encouraging enough to make me try yet another new install. Widows 10 is a moving target.

    That hidden error box on start has always been an issue with IREDIT in all windows versions.
