    Since this thread has been linked to (by PD :)) - here is an alternative:

    This worked for me using XP-pro norwegian:
    1. Install IR-server suite, found in first post here:
    2. You only need IR Server
    3. Rightclick on tray -> setup -> configure MCE (...) -> Enable all tabs.

    Good luck!

    because of XP home i needed the fix of the OP.

    But, it dont work with SP3. It just says, the fix is no longer needed.

    So i did the procedre on SP2, then upgraded to SP3 and it still works.

    For the german users: dont forget to change your language:)

    I'm not sure how to post a proper "Thanks" as sloty32 did, so I'll just say it... Thanks!!!

    I was finally able to purge Vista from our home.

    My thanks to sloty32, also... I suspect his post saved me some pain, since I installed the MCE Rollup before installing SP3 for XP.

    SP3 and MCE Rollup

    I just did a clean build with a new SP3 OEM XP Pro disc...

    Is there any way to install the rollup, seeing that it's a native SP3 build?

    The MCE keyboard should be fully supported with XP SP3 - there is no need for the MCE rollup.
