Driver development, test and support has not officially continued beyond Windows 7 or for any 64-bit versions of Windows, but we do offer some advice for getting your PC Remote working with these versions and many users have reported success:

Windows 64-bit OS Drivers

PC Remote driver updates were never officially released or supported for 64-bit version of Windows. However, as a courtesy to our loyal customers, we have released instructions and downloads that many users have used to successfully get their PC Remotes working on the 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Please refer to the following instructions with download links inside:

Windows Vista 64-bit
Windows 7 64-bit

Windows 8 Special Notes

  • When installing on 32-bit Windows 8, use the standard 32-bit Download link at top of this page.
  • When installing on 64-bit Windows 8, follow the Windows 7 64-bit instructions above.

In both 32 or 64-bit Windows 8, after installing the drivers, you will still have to tell Windows to find the Streamzap drivers in the Device Manager: Select "Streamzap" in the Device Manager and open its "Properties". In the "Driver" tab, select "Update Driver", then select "Search Automatically". Windows should then install the Streamzap drivers properly. A reboot may be required.


Girder Plug-in

Advanced users can enhance the capabilities of their Streamzap PC Remote with our Girder plug-in.

Winamp3 Plug-in

We've enhanced Winamp with our plug-in for the Streamzap PC Remote. Our plug-in gives you more remote control over Winamp than anything else on the market.

Philips Pronto Configuration File

Marco Ramundo, one of our customers from Switzerland, sent us a configuration file for the Philips Pronto learning remote. If you have a Philips Pronto, you can download the configuration file and try it.

Please keep in mind that we do not support this at all, we are simply providing it as a convenience to our customers.
