   driver.

   * Installation Procedure:

     - Regular install:
       1. Run "setup.exe" (by double-clicking or from the command prompt)
          or
          Run "<setup file path>\setup.exe" from the command prompt
          or
          Run "<setup file path>\setup.exe -i <msi file path>\CIRdrivers_Installer.msi".
       2. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the driver installation.

     - Silent install:
       Run "setup.exe -s" from the command prompt
       or
       Run "<setup file path>\setup.exe -s"  from the command prompt
       or
       Run "<setup file path>\setup.exe -s -i <msi file path>\CIRdrivers_Installer.msi".

     To determine the installation status, check the value of the following

       HKLM\SOFTWARE\Nuvoton Technology Corporation\CIR Device Drivers\install

   * Uninstallation Procedure:
   
     - Uninstallation from GUI:
       1. Under the "Programs and Features" list, click the
          "Uninstall" button in the "Nuvoton CIR Device Drivers" entry.
       2. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the driver
          uninstallation.

     - Uninstallation from a command line:
       Run "setup.exe -u CIRdrivers_Installer.msi"
       or
       Run "<setup file path>\setup.exe -u <msi file path>\CIRdrivers_Installer.msi".

     - Command line silent uninstallation:
       Run "setup.exe -s -u CIRdrivers_Installer.msi"
       or
       Run "<setup file path>\setup.exe -s -u <msi file path>\CIRdrivers_Installer.msi".

   * Repair Procedure:
   
     - Repair from GUI:

       3. A dialog named "Device Driver Installation Wizard" appears. Follow the
          on-screen instructions to complete the driver repair.

     - Repair from command line:
       1. Run "setup.exe"

        it.

ENHANCEMENTS
------------
   None.   


FIXED ISSUES
------------
   * When installing the drivers, a dialog may notify that the driver is not
     digitally signed, although it is.
     The driver is safe to use, and therefore, users should select the option to
     "Install this driver software anyway" and continue the installation.

   
KNOWN ISSUES
------------
   * Driver version 8.1.62.3001 does not support changing the CIR RC wake key.
     The wake key is determined by the EC FW, and cannot be modified by the
     driver. This is the only limitation in Windows CIR version 2 DDI support.
     
   * The "Repair or Remove" dialog (which appears when a repair procedure is
     initiated) is in English only, regardless of the local system language.
     
   * In Croatian systems, the user interface dialogs appear in English (the EULA
     appears in Croatian).
