I did some snooping around on the net, and I found a fix to get the console to appear for Vista users.


Apparently, Vista comes with drivers for an IR receiver. These drivers, even if you don't have a remote, interfere with the console somehow.

This post was taken from the NotebookReviews forum.


It's the ITECIR Infrared Driver interfering. You have to uninstall the driver in order to use the console in games. It's in the device manager under Human Interface Devices.


I just tried it out and the console appeared.

I have a 64-bit and 32-bit systems both have IR devices.

my 32-bit system have an external IR that its driver caused consoles not to work until i detached it from the pc.

my 64-bit HP with internal IR, has no problems with driver/console conflict.

guess it just depends on your IR device if it conflicts or not.

it depends on your screen size. on 1280x1024 it seems to never show up. but on 1280x960 or 1024x768 it works fine.

from what I've seen, screen size doesn't matter.


The console itself was inaccessible for whatever reason.
