Ok this old problem again. I have now Vista x64 and am trying to get my BT dongle to work. I have installed the oroginal software and was shown a update on the Widcomm/Broadcom site. I have downloaded the update but when i start it all it says is" can't find USB BT DONGLE"
I have attached the screenshot and the BTWINITIALUPDATE.exe

If anyone has any ideas

Have you tried using the built in stack? I was forced to use Vista's Bluetooth stack.

And, Happy Birthday.

No i just tried the widcomm disk straight off. What is the best way to uninstall widcomm and start using the windows drivers, as i remember there was an issue with XP drivers this way.
Uninstall it from Add/Remove, reboot, then insert the device and see if Vista picks up on it.

There have been improvements but it isn't perfect.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
