Sorry for the repost, but this is a bit different now.

OK, gave up on my WiddComm stacking, new dongle. Works perfect on XP, all programs go, no issues or extra work.

On Vista, I load BlueSoleil, and I can connect the WiiMote, but no prgrams say it is connected. Lights are flashing (like on XP), BS says it is connected and services up, claims it is a joystick. Anyone have this issue at all? Any help appreciated.

In device manager, there is a yellow warning sign on the HID device, and says "This device can not start. (Code 10)"  if that helps at all.

Running BS 6, should I downgrade to 5?

Would that mean I need to uninstall BlueSoleil and let Wondows find drivers online?
I was using the WiddComm stack on Vista, and used that program of yours, and had the same issue. If it is not WiddComm that you are talking about but something else, then I will try it. Is it?

hm that would mean you uninstall blusoleil and widdcomm stack/software. Windows then should normaly use its own universal bt stack.
you could also select it by hand but try this first, would take longer to explain the other procedure

Got it to work!!!

For Vista, you need to use bluesoleil 5.0, not 6.0, and it works just fine.
