3-04_rw_enu.exefor English-only and
I installed from
3-04_rw_enu.exe. Everything seemed fine before the reboot, but afterwards I saw the following:
C:\Program Files\ATI Multimedia\RemCtrl\drivers\wdreg_gui.exe Error
Error updating the driver (hid:*WINDRVR6) with the INF file: The system cannot find the file specified.
The command reporting the error was:
"C:\Program Files\ATI Multimedia\RemCtrl\drivers\wdreg_gui.exe" -inf "C:\Program Files\ATI Multimedia\RemCtrl\drivers\ATIRWVD.INF" install
This error may relate to Jungo WinDriver. The program ran, but there was no tray icon and the remote did not work. An optional Remote Wonder update became available on Windows Update, but that did not make the remote work.
To make it work, I installed the X10 drivers from
x10drivers.exe. The installer also contains drivers for other X10 hardware, but that is not a problem. It fails to create an Install.log file for uninstall, so uninstall fails. If you want to fix that, grab it from
%Temp%by creating a hard link to the right randomly named and currently in use temporary file when the installer says the install succeeded. That's not of much use though, because using it, the uninstaller just deletes a directory with a few internet shortcuts and removes the uninstall entry. If you want to remove the driver, you could remove it from the Driver Store using
pnputil, but that's neither necessary nor recommended.
There may be another alternative,
setup_rwplus_xp_vista.exe, but I don't recommend it. That file contains the same version of X10 drivers, but it also creates a bunch of HID devices in Device Manager that are difficult to get rid of. The installer also fails to create Install.log, and it doesn't even pause to let you grab the file from
Finally, you may want to customize some things. There's a site with various plugins for the Remote Wonder software. If you want to customize almost any key, then install the RW Key Factory plugin. For total freedom to customize any key, or if you want to try an alternative to the ATI program, try RW Key Master.
