My IR blaster used to work. However, after some system updates, it's not working. I've tried using old drivers and unistalling/reinstalling the drivers etc. as well as plugging into different USB ports. Still don't get any activity on the IR blaster. I'm using the IR transciever that came with the HP Tv Wonder.
When EG launches, I get the following warning messages:
MCE_Vista: MceIr pipe is not available, app doesn't seem to be running
Will continue to try to connect to MceIr
Message = The system cannot find the file specified.
If I try to install the service using the MCE Vista config, I get the following error messages:
Traceback (most recent call last) (1544):

I'm on WIndows 7 64bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (I did spend hours going through the forums, and was unable to come up with a solution despite seeing similar problems.
