I've finally found a way for Smoothboard to work.
If I take out the Wiimote's batteries and replace them every time, then Smoothboard is able to connect to the Wiimote just fine. However, other software still is not able to use it.

That is weird. After replacing the battery once, have you try reconnecting like normally (without reinserting again)?

Also, have you tried the Red Sync button to connect instead of the 1+2 buttons?

Using the sync button seems to work most of the time. Sometimes I still have to take out the battery though.


As for using other software, after many hours of messing around with things, I think I finally found a solution:
First I open GlovePIE. I then open my script and press Run.
Then I put the Wiimote into discovery mode and connect the usual way.( In the Bluetooth control panel)
The Wiimote will seem to be connected for a moment, but then its icon will have a yellow exclamation mark on it. After a second, it disconnects and the icon disappears. I then put the Wiimote back into discovery mode and connect again in the usual way, and this time it works.
It's weird that I have to do all that, but at least it's working now.
