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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
