So I still use a mx3000 and I am not sure if anyone else did it but I got it to work with windows 10.


1) Locate the MX-3000Setup.exe
2) Right click then click properties
3) Click the second tab on top called compatibility
4) check the box labeled (run this program in compatibility mode for:)
5) set it to windows xp (service pack 2) click apply then ok.
6) Install MX-3000 EDITOR and ignore Windows Mobile Device Center (let it fail)
7)locate the main MX-3000 Editor file after install and set it to windows xp sp2 compatibility mode the same way we did in steps 2-5., should be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Universal Remote Control, Inc\MX-3000 Editor
8) install drvupdate-amd64.exe (google search)

Note: Do not let the remote go to sleep during the remaining steps.

Connect the remote via USB
Open Device manager
Double-click the exclamation mark in Device Manager
Click "Update Driver"
Click "Browse My Computer"
Click "Let Me Pick"
Choose "Mobile Device"
Choose "Microsoft" as the manufacturer
Choose "Microsoft USB Sync"

Windows Mobile Device Center should now open, and the remote should chime when it connects.

With the mx still on open editor and test it.

Worked for me after I made sure the remote did not go to sleep during the second process.

2019 update, no longer works on either of my Windows 10 PCs. There must've been something introduced by Windows Update. The remote NEVER chimes or pops up the connection window. I'd been doing all my updates on my Windows 7 PC which has finally been put out to pasture. Anyone still have it working on Windows 10?

A little more research found the solution, big THANK YOU to stefan32 who posted this in another thread about a different URC remote.

"Just in case someone has the same problem here's the solution

Type services in the search box in windows 10

Select Services, Select "Windows Mobile-2003 based device connectivity, select log on tab, unselect "This account", select Local system account, the check off Allow service to interact with desktop"

AFTER the top install/settings were still not communicating, I made the changes under Settings and everything works normally!

One more small issue to get it to work for me. I have to first manually launch Windows Mobile Device Center and connect the remote, THEN launch the MX-3000 Editor software to get it to see the remote. You also need to quit the MX-3000 software before you connect a second remote (I have a few, thanx eBay!), connect the remote, then relaunch Editor. Tedious but at least it is working well in Windows 10 when I follow the steps outlined here.
