Information about configuring IrDa in Windows 98

The built-in IR hardware must be disabled in order to re-enable the Windows 95 "Generic IR" support. This must be done that Windows 98 would see the IR port as a serial port and assign a COM port which can be used with IRassistant.

Make two changes to MSPORTS.INF file:
;Add the following line to support the IR port
%*PNP0510.DeviceDesc% = ComPort, *PNP0510 ; Generic IR device/Comm Port
;Add the following line to provide a device description for PNP0510
*PNP0510.DeviceDesc = "Generic Ir Serial Port"

Go into device manager and remove the devices associated with the original Windows 98 configuration:

- IrDa Network Adapter
- Virtual COM/PRT ports
- Infrared device

Reboot your PC and Windows 98 should now install a 'Generic Ir Serial Port' and assign a true COM port.
