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.
