Can I skip this step, since I'm not using IRman or a remote?
Next step is to register the supplied mscomm32.ocx run-time library - used for serial port IRman access within your operating system. This can be achieved through one of two supplied batch files, install_lib9x.bat for windows 95/98/ME and install_libNT.bat for windows NT/2000/XP. If the batch file(s) fail, you may need to edit their command syntax to work with your target machine. Also if not already present on your system, grab a copy of the Visual Basic 6 runtime files from Microsoft to install at this time.
