Title: SOLVED - Any solution for XP x64?
Post by: Peter14850 on October 28, 2008, 12:23:40 AM
I have spent hours figuring out what's wrong with my Kensington 33348 USB 2.0 dongle on XP x64, finding out BlueSoleil and MS stacks didn't work at all.  With Widcomm stack, I found out it's certainly communicating with my Wii remote because if I use the "Add a Bluetooth device" menu command, I can make a connected state icon and it also goes back to unconnected state icon when I press Wii power button.  Everything is very reproducible.  The only problem is that Wii remote is not recognized in the software I tried (Smoothboard from the Boon Jin and another) with the four blue leds blinking even long after the connection is apparently made. 

I knew that XP x64 had some problem with Wii remote by reading Johnny C. Lee's intro page but I didn't know it is this tricky.  Has anyone succeeded with other brand BT dongle on XP x64?  Any help or comment???  Please???

Sounds like your BT is not fully installing correctly as should work, follow self-help guide, if still not working please post details as per guide and we can help you.

Hi, Benpaddlejones,
Thanks for such a fast response.
Good news is that I solved the problem
by reading what other guys are talking
about the BlueSoleil.
I never tried BlueSoleil together with
Widcomm stack assuming they may conflict
with one another.  I was WRONG!
Installing them together worked beautifully.
Now it's fun time for me to make an IR LED
glove with a little intensity switch.  =DDD
