Hello,

I have recently installed the following

wiimotelib, version 1.5.2
IOGear GBU221 Bluetooth Dongle
Latest Bluetooth software for Broadcom
 
I am running Windows XP SP 3.

I am able to get the Nintendo Bluetooth device to be created.

However, when I run the WiimoteTest software, I get the "No Wimmotes found in HID device list" message.

I would be grateful if anyone who has experienced and resolved similar difficulties would be willing to share their knowledge.

Here is the output from the Device Manager:

Human Interface Devices
   Bluetooth Remote Control            {95C7A0A0-3094-11D7-A202-00508B9D7D5A}\HIDAVCONTROL\1&30EE4AD&0&1000000050000
   Bluetooth Virtual HID Device        {95C7A0A0-3094-11D7-A202-00508B9D7D5A}\HID_MOUSE\1&30EE4AD&0&2010101010101
   HID-compliant consumer control device   HID\HIDAVCONTROL\2&5D3DF16&0&0000
        Microsoft USB Wheel Mouse Optical


Mice and other pointing devices
   Alps Pointing-device
   HID-compliant mouse         HID\HID_MOUSE\2&3073931C&0&0000
   Microsoft USB Wheel Mouse Optical

and here is the output from the library, run in debug mode:

What is interesting is that the mHandle returned by CreateFile is invalid in most cases
(mHandle.IsInvalid == true )

and the call to HidD_GetAttributes invariably fails.

Any suggestions or advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks

Received by PM from ianR:
It has been resolved.
I downloaded the most recent drivers from broadcom (NOT iogear) and that fixed the problem. Thanks, Ian
