I am looking for a way to establish infrared connection from Windows PC, with programming interface available for C/C++. I tried the following directions:
Laptop with InfraRed port: no programming interface. Maybe there are some drivers (like converting to virtual COM port), or any other software solution?
Serial to IRDA adaptors - look exactly like I need. Such adaptor can be plugged to PC COM port and available through serial port API. But all products I found are very old and not available anymore.
USB to IRDA adaptors - available, but I didn't find anything with programming interface. It would be nice to have such adapter with SDK (like Read, Write functions) or with virtual COM port driver.
