Hi everyone !

I have 2 bluetooth usb-key :

- TnB USB Bluetooth http://www.t-nb.com/1produit-1773-adaptateur-usb-bluetooth-v2.0.html
- TrendNet TBW-106UB

When I launch BlueSoleil (v2.7.0.13) I can see the Wiimote and I can connect it thanks BS.

However, when I try to launch Wiimote Whiteboard (http://www.uweschmidt.org/wiimote-whiteboard) I have this message :

"WiiRemote failed to connect! Not Supported on bluesoleil" So wtf ? :o

I've also tried to quit bluesoleil before launching the whiteboard software, with the same result...

Can anybody help me ? Thanks ;)

Hi,

The Java Wiimote Whiteboard will only work the Widcomm Bluetooth Stack.

You can try Smoothboard to test whether it works as Smoothboard should work with any Bluetooth stack in Windows.

Also, Smoothboard will automatically connect your Wiimote if you are using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack.

You can find more information about the connectivity with the Wiimote and the different Bluetooth stacks at http://boonjin.com/smoothboard/index.php?title=Connect_the_Wiimote

Hi,

To auto connect, you will need to uninstall Bluesoleil and use the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack.

If after uninstalling and the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack is not loaded, you can try the following tool http://www.bluetoothinstaller.com

Alternatively, you can upgrade to the latest Bluesoleil 6.x version which should simplify the connection process.
