Yes. Post 7 helped. This is still confusing, but I'll get used to it. Ultimately, though, it failed to generate a ccf.

CCF Panels (IR Panels)
Generate a CCF file from the HEX file created with MakeHex.
After creating a HEX file, open it with a text editor such as NotePad.  Use "Edit" "Select All" (or Ctrl +A), then "Edit" "Copy" (or Ctrl +C) to copy all the text.  Then start IrPanels and use Ctrl +V to paste the text into its window and press Generate CCF File. A CCF file will be created in the IR Panels Folder called IRCodesCreate (Don`t use the file called IRCodes Master) that you can use for testing in a Pronto Remote and some others.

I did what I believe is exactly what you said in the paragraph above. However, you say to copy the hex commands into THE window, and there is a small upper and large lower window in the ccf generator. The hex codes won't copy into the top window, so I copied them into the large window. Generate then gave me

Runtime Error '5.'
Invalid procedure call or argument

Hope this helps.

It got me further along.

Edit: Here's a thought --

A CCF file will be created in the IR Panels Folder called IRCodesCreate

There is no such folder. Are you (not) saying I should create a folder with that name? I'll try it.

Edit: Didn't work. I've been concerned in trying to follow these instructions that the words "just" and "simply" have appeared in a few places. My experience with those words is taht they literally mean "I'm about to assume that you know more than I am going to write down now." Maybe that's my problem.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
