ASRock CIR (Nuvoton) and Windows 8.1

Unlike most semi modern hardware, the CIR module provided by Nuvoton does not work out of the box in Windows 8. Additionally, the Windows 8 drivers (version 2.5.1003) that are linked to on all of ASRock’s motherboard pages do not work in Windows 8.1. The driver installation fails silently, giving the cryptic “This operation requires an interactive window station” error in Device Manager. Fortunately, there is a Windows 8.1 driver, its version is 2.9.1007 and you can find it on the driver’s page for ASRock’s VisionX series mini PC.
