    Same here... for reference, later on after you've fixed the service problem,
    if it doesn't work very well try setting it to Vishay 6101E for the Infrared
    Tranceiver Type - I couldn't get mine to connect reliably at all until I
    changed this value... but that isn't your problem here...

    Yes - I have Infrared Monitor started on my computer, if I stop it the tray
    icon does not appear, nor can I connect my phone.

    The path to the executable in the service properties is:
    "C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs". You could try adding it
    manually maybe?

    It says this service depends on the following system components:
    IrDA Protocol
    RPC
    Terminal Services
    +---RPC

    It is more likely that it's just what it says - the IrDA protocol is not
    installed (or is missing)... The IrDA protocol on my machine was installed
    from the netidra.inf file (located with all the other inf files in
    c:\windows\inf). You could try looking through the netirda.inf file and make
    sure all the required files are still installed where they should be. Here
    is the list from my computer:

    C:\Windows\System32\irftp.exe
    C:\Windows\System32\irmon.dll
    C:\Windows\System32\wshirda.dll
    C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\irda.sys
    C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\rasirda.sys

    If a file is not where it should be, have a look on your Windows XP CD in
    the I386 folder, in the DRIVER.CAB file - all the required files for the
    IrDA protocol are in there.

    After checking the above and copying any missing files back try rebooting
    and starting the IrDA Monitor Service (which should appear after the files
    are replaced).

    Let us all know if this works.

    Hi Ian Wu,

    thus spoke "Ian Wu" <[email protected]>:
    [...no IR Monitor]

    I suppose this error occurs, because XP doesn't support IrDA at
    all (same as my Win2k Pro). Perhaps you want to install IrComm2k
    <http://www.stud.uni-hannover.de/~kis....0.0-beta1.exe>
    and try again ...

    HTH.

    I have XP (pro) and no problems with my cheap sigmatel IR adapter. Windows
    "installed" it on its own, no need for driver disks or anything.
