Title: SOLVED - Belkin adapter skip code not working HELP!!!
Post by: ITArchitect on September 16, 2008, 05:23:18 PM
I downloaded the wiimoteConnect-5.0 and unzipped and ran .exe
I get an error and it doesn't load. Is their a special way of loaded the program?
I assumed to just run the executed file and it would install the .dll file.

Another user has had major problems with teh belkin, I'm sure its a Widdcomm stack and hence incompatable with the Wiiconnect application. Thex built that application for Windows Bluetooth Stack.

Try removing the drivers for the belkin, then just plug in the USB if windows acknowledges the USB BT Device and loads its own BT drivers then thex's application will work.

Thanks for the info. I'll try next.
In the mean time I purchased the TrendNet BT TBW-105UB. I loaded it and it find the BT. It allows me to skip the pairing and it connects, but it only lasts for a second and then it disconnects.

Also, the whiteboard software, where do I copy the files to?  It's currently on my desktop.

Try holding buttons 1&2 throuh whole connection process until just before you execute the Wiimote Whiteboard app.

Anywhere you want, I suggest making a Wiimote Whiteboard folder in c:\program files\ then create a short cut in your start menu (copy .exe file, open start menu and right click the select paste short cut)

It must be a Widdcomm stack. I've been strougling with the Belkin F8T013 too and still haven't been able to run the wii-mote touch screen application. But I tried the Widdcomm drivers and when that failed I ran the setup from belkin and it mentioned that it was updating the current installation. It even has the same setup window (same drawings and background).

Try removing the drivers for the belkin, then just plug in the USB if windows acknowledges the USB BT Device and loads its own BT drivers then thex's application will work.

I tried removing, rebooting, cleaning registry, rebooting again, but my windows XP can't find the drivers for it. So I am forced to use Belkin drivers.
I can even make a the connection work, but the white board ap can't find the wiimote in my HID.

I am sure I've used the windows XP drivers once ... still the same laptop, so it must work, but I don't how. And I don't feel like restoring to the original setup when I bought the dell lapop.

There is something different about the Belkin USB BT Radio. Most users have reported problems. Without testing and identifying I can't specifically tell you what it is. Its definatley not widdcom, as widcomm is used by numerus users (including my laptop & desktop).

I suggest you get a different USB BT Radio specifically one that is compatable with Windows BT.

Thank you ... a different one it will be.
Is there a 'best' one? Very flexible one?
