I've been trying to replicate a problem on hardware by creating an IR link using the Series 60 emulator and a Jeteye IR pod connected to the serial port of a PC. Attempting to activate the IR link by selecting the icon in the Communications folder, results in a KErrAccessDenied error.

I've correctly set the physical port that the IR pod is connected by editing the irda_wins.esk file in the C:\system\data folder of the emulator so that shouldn't be the problem. It's been suggested that it may be a conflict with another application using the same port but I don't know what that may be.

Anybody got any ideas how to make an IR link with the emulator?

Thanks in advance.
