    Has anyone managed to get the software to work for the above remote control under Windows XP ?

    I downlaoded the software on recommendation from Denon only to find the driver was written for Windows 95 and doesn't work under XP.

    Anyone else out there with the answer ?

    Have you tried running the software in 'compatability mode'?

    To do this:
    right click on the icon
    select 'properties'
    select 'compatability' tab
    click the box for compatability mode
    select 'Windows 95'

    I downloaded the aktis software and it works fine, but i recall having to manually install the driver for it.

    It comes up as unknown somethingorother in Device manager and I had to install the driver manually by pointing it to the Denon folder in c://program files.

    Well it was essential to me to get the extended IR codes for the updated A1SE, and its also nice to reprogram it from a pc instead of on the actual unit.

    Yup I got the software from the US Aktis Site and it works fine.

    I have tried to manually install but under Xp it does not recognise the driver as matching the hardware. Part of the problem may be the firmware version on the controller is v1.

    As far as runnign in W95 comp. mode it isn't the issue as the software works fine but the driver for the RC doesn't register therefore the software has nothing to talk to.

    I am still awaiting a reply from Denon....I won't hold my breath though.
