The subject title says it all, I've tried using GlovePIE's Bluetooth Fix but no dice, any help is appreciated.

I might also need more help on how to connect it, I've pressed both buttons (1 and 2) down and it is seen in "My Bluetooth Places" but when I check its connectivity status, it tells me it is not connected.

Make sure your bluetooth works with other bluetooth devices so you eliminate that kind of problem(harware, drivers...)

Then make sure you can pair and connect your bluetooth with your wiimote and that is where the 2 buttons is needed
(choose pairing without security code)

When you have a confirmed pairing you should have an icon representing your wiimote

Press 1&2 to get led's flashing and rightclick on your icon from step above and choose connect
(my icon is a joystick that is blue when disconnected and it turns green when it's connected)

Then you can start your application to have fun...
Hope it helps..

btw - i have this dongle from billionton...(100m version)

Use bluesoleil the bluetooth software that johnny put a link to in his project page. It'll find it for you and and connect, keep in mind that you have to hold down 1+2 buttons on the wiimote throughout the entire connection process. I had to do it twice, once with discovery and the second during connection.

I as well am havinjg a problem similar to this, and there must be a way to fix this, i assume that it is a driver issue or some sort of issue with our HID Devices ill explain what i mean.

When i connect the wii-mote to the computer Bluetooth reads it as connected as an HID Device so when i try to connect, Not found? Well, it is. but the computer doesnt think so, i went to device manager and in your Human Interface devices you have your remote connection (Bluetooth HID Device) Only it has a yellow Exclamation mark next to it. and if you open it, it tells you that the device could not be started. Theres the problem, the driver cant start the device, i have searched all over for an OLDER driver to try it, or even a different driver, but Vista + Blue Soleill Creates that same driver everytime to connect, all other devices work properly, I hope that there is enough detail in that information for people to give some quick trouble shooting ideas out, maybe one will work Smiley Thanks.

I cannot tell you how accurate this is but in my case I do not have to hold the buttons.

Once paired (I did hold 2 buttons during that process) i now can rightclick on my "wiimote-icon" on the desktop and choose connect.

Prior to that i just press 1&2 simultaneously to get the wiimote's led's flashing.

Then click connect as mentioned above...

After that I am ready to go with all available software

Is your bluetooth internal/integrated or external? I totally skipped any software from microsoft, i knew right away that the wiimote was unlikely to connect with the software on my computer. Bluesoleil is a driver/software it has everything you need to connect the device and start sending data. But again that totally depends on what kind of bluetooth adapter you have and what version of windows your using.

Tried it, tried editing the configuration to suit my bluetooth adapter and it did not work.
