Alright... this is a little difficult to explain, but here goes:

I don't have a problem connecting my wiimote to my computer via bluetooth, it detects it and lets me connect as desired...  But, when I attempt to use any scripts with GlovePIE 0.29 and my wiimote (whether it utilizes any attachments or not) nothing seems to work but the LEDs lighting up.

I used to be able to use GlovePIE 0.29 and my wiimote with the guitar attachment just fine through bluetooth when I was playing on JamLegend (an online guitar hero knockoff).  I stopped playing it roughly a month ago, and I just attempted to get my wiimote connected again to use the classic controller and it seems to have the aforementioned problem.  I was attempting to get it all hooked up to use to play FFXII on my PS2 emulator (PCSX2).

Should I be using another program?  Or is there something wrong with my bluetooth connection/wiimote?

Edit: I forgot to add, I'm using PPJoy to emulate a joystick and using that on GlovePIE, and my Bluetooth is an integrated HP Module that uses WIDCOMM. (If any of that helps)

I think ive got the exact same problem, i have xp on another comp, and my wiimote works perfectly with govepie, but with vista it connects and has the blinking lights, but i cant get glovepie to control the wiimote. are there any other programs out there more compatible for vista?

any help would be apreciated.

From memory GlovePie is bound to Bluesoleil & you need a plug in to get it working with other stacks. Test your Bluetooth with Smoothboard and see if that works.

Also make sure you are using Widcome 4.1 if v5 will not work.

If Vista Widcomm is actually Microsoft with a Widcomm interface. Again try Smoothboard and see if you can get a connection. Your issue is different to BenjaminBustamove so if you can't get working start a new thread so we can help :)
