Hi to all,

Product name: PC-based remote control software.

Is it able to record the infrared string from the remote control? then what kind of technology i have to use for access the infrared string?

Dear Gops,
you may need platform sdk, better see Instrumentation classes under MSDN, this will guide you the basic interaction with USB port/device

I think you don't have to deal with USB at all. It will emulate a standard Irda port. There are 2 basic ways to program an Irda port: using Windows sockets and directly as a serial port. That will depend on how communicates your remote devices.
Have a look to this interesting related article from Microsoft:
