Hi everyone!

I trying to get the WiiMultipointGrid.exe to run and work on my computer. I have connected the Wii mote to my computer and I can find it in the Windows Controll Panel. However when I run the WiiMultipointGrid.exe it tells me the Wii mote is not connected. I'm using a Bluetooth from Billonton but I'm not sure if it is the Billionton GUBTCR42 so I was thinking this might be the problem. But in any case windows can find it.

Thanks for any kind of input and advice.

Cheers!

How are you connecting the device?

This is an internal device so I assume coupled with Widcomm stack. You may need to change the code: http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-and-bluetooth-connectivity/i-cant-get-my-*insert-johnnys-app-name-here*-to-connect-help!/. This will allow the app to work with any BT stack.

Hi

Thanks for your help. I replaced the code in wiimote.cs file like "I cant get my *insert Johnnys app name here* to connect Help!" recommended you to, but I got the same results. I'm using an external Bluetooth adapter from Billionton connected in a USB slot. I looked up which Bluetooth was usable for the WiiMote connection and it mentioned a Billionton Bluetooth device but I can't tell if the one I have is the right one.

I know that my Bluetooth thing is old and I was thinking that might be the reason. However I can't tell for sure and I was thinking it would work since I could connect the WiiMote to my computer using it. If anyone who knows anything about this any help would be appreciated

When I run the WiiMultipointGrid.exe I get the error message:"Cannot find a wii remote:Error reading data from Wiimote...is it connected?"

Thanks for the help

Lets start whith checking you BT is functioning, I need some info and ask you to do a few basic tests.

Which BT stack are you using with the Dongle?
What is you connection sequence?
Connect a BT mouse/phone/other device and confirm BT works?
Try running Boonjins Whiteboard app (www.boonjin.com/wp) does it work?

Hi

Firstly, thanks Benpaddlejones for your help, time and input it really help a lot

Sorry I haven't had time to try the Whiteboard yet but I'll run a test for it tomorrow.
About the BT if it works, it work I can connect my phone without a problem.
I'm using the built-in BT stack in Windows Vista I belive version 6.0.6001.18000.
I'm sorry to say I don't know how to check for the connection sequence I'm using. I don't know what I'm looking for since I don't know what it is.

Something I did try was the WiimoteConnect-0.5 and it could connect my Wii mote to the BT

Thanks for you further help.

Cool, Thex's WiimoteConnect is an awesome utility, will fix all your connection problems. I wish Thex would make compatible with Widcomm  Cry but he doesn't come by these streets anymore.

If you still have problems running the program (and Wiimote Smoothboard works) your issue is: http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-and-bluetooth-connectivity/i-cant-get-my-*insert-johnnys-app-name-here*-to-connect-help!/

Haha I'm so stupid!

I'm sorry I took your time Benpaddlejones. The problem was that I didn't build the project. I had already replaced that part of the source code but I had forgotten the last step. Thanks for your help and time it gave me hope when things started to look bad  Grin Now it runs perfectly and smoothly.

Thanks again and good work on the forums!
