ok this is theproblem !!
I have already sort of had girder working (just didn't get round to mapping the keys).
The thing is after messing around for ages, it seems that the only thing that will work with my remote is the igor plug-in ok that's fine, BUT !...now I have dicovered what seems to work with it , I went for a clean up reinstalled the whole thing, got rid of the old folder.... reinstalled the whole thing again with the plug in and ...............nothing .. now it wont work at all
I just dont understand ?....can t get it see the remote at all the only way that I know that it is seeing the control is with the blinking of the icon in the task bar. it wont see the remote at all now ...pleeeeeeze any suggestions ??

Make sure the settings for the Igor plugin are correct for your particular receiver (DCD or DSR, com port #, priority level, etc).
Make sure the receiver is plugged into the serial port. I tend to knock these PARTIALLY out of the plugs 1-2 times a month.

ok, all I want to know is what the hell options do I have to get the thing working again, once I can get the remote talking to the receiver again, then I will prolly be able to work it out from there!

Did you check the settings for the Igor plugin?

It sounds like the other pc remote control software you installed is hogging the port the controller is attached to, therefore Girder and it's plugins can't access it. Most ports cannot be shared with multiple applications.
