    And for Windows 10 in Danish:

    Indstillinger => Apps => Apps og funktioner => Valgfri funktioner => Tilføj en funktion => IrDA-infrarød


    Stifinder => Denne Computer => Administrer => Enhedshåndtering => Infrarød => Avanceret
    Ændre kommunikation fra 4000000 baud til 19200 baud.

    Then it works...

    I have had so many of these kinds of issues involving windows 10 and older hardware that I just opted for a permanent fix. I bought a used Dell system on Amazon with Win7 64bit installed and use a KVM switch to move between my new PC and the Win7 machine. I honestly find that I use the Win7 machine a lot more than the Win10. At first I tried dual booting but there are just to many hardware issues.

    Then remember to restart W10, after doing this I still couldn't connect to my Galileo Luna using the Galileoconfig software, so I found this post by Scubapro that did the trick. After doing this fix, I had to remove the USB IRDA from the port and plug it back in, I hope this helps:

    Hi Deeman001, thanks for the link to the scubapro website. I followed the instructions, and still could not get the dongle to work, but after googling for drivers found a win 7 64 bit driver that win 10 was happy to use. I had tried loading drivers before making the scubapro suggested changes with no luck. Greatly appreciate your post

    The irony of buying and maintaining a computer in order to maintain a computer! I have done similar things myself to keep access to old tech. Hope you get many dives out of it.
