Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium
Bluetooth: http://cgi.ebay.com/100M-2-4G-PC-XP-USB-2-0-EDR-BLUETOOTH-V2-DONGLE-ADAPTER_W0QQitemZ390019890560QQihZ026QQcategoryZ44999QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I downloaded smoothboard, installed my bluetooth adaptor, plugged it in and it installed itself just fine. I added the wiimote to it just fine. Everything perfect. Went under properties> services and clicked on the Drivers for keyboard, mice HID. It installed a new driver, Bluetooth HID Device, from Microsoft.

Click on smoothboard to start it and i keep getting errors. Sometimes its "No Wiimores found in HID device list" and something the program crashes...

I downloaded the main WiimoteWhiteboard program and that one also gives me an error: "No available Wiimote found, check bluetooth connection"... sometimes, that one also crashes...

i dont know why all this is happening... can someone help please...

Try grabbing a copy of GlovePIE and see if you can connect the wiimote with that by running the wiimotetest script. This isn't necessarily a fix to your problem, but it would help see if the problem is the connection of the programs.

    * Operating System: Vista
    * Bluetooth Stack: Microsoft
    * Bluetooth Stack version: 6.0.6001.18000
    * Connection Method using: USB


I did that and my phone was able to send a track to my computer so its not the bluetooth dongle.




I have tried everything. I have a HP Media PC... with the remote and the wireless keyboard., i believe thats the eHome stuff.

1. Delete:
Device from Bluetoothd evice list
From device manager:
- Bluetooth HID Device
- HID Complient consumer device x2
- HID keyboard device
- HID complient mouse x2

2. Turn off all filters & protection applications esp any registry monitors

3. Restart comp

4. Connect as per: http://www.boonjin.com/smoothboard/index.php?title=Connecting_the_Wiimote_to_a_XP/Vista/Mac_Bootcamp_Microsoft_Bluetooth_stack

Make sure you hold buttons 1&2 until app starts.

I keep getting an error.. "Error reading data from wiimote... is it connected?"

Just to note, when i remove those drivers, when i uninstall them... my keyboard and mouse does not work. Had to press it power button for the computer to shut down itself automatically...

All plug & play, so will reinstaled on reboot.

Have you loaded any other BT stacks?

I'm also wondering if the conflict is from your special keyboard? Do you have a normal usb/seriel mose/keyboard you can use to test?

Try unistalling everything inc BT use normal keyboard then reinsert BT USB

Also try Thex's Wiimoteconnection not in learn mode see what happens.

I got a usb mouse and uninstalled all those drivers to test it out and it still does the same thing :( I dont know what else to do.... What could be causing this?

It seems as if when its suppose to work, the programs crash for some reason. I dont have anything blocking them except for the normal avast anti-virus. I even paused it to test it out and still does the same thing.

Stop avast, uninstall drivers and reinstall.

Have you tried Thex Wiimote Connect?

If thios doesn't work we'll have to do some further digging. You have  aconflicting driver somewhere in your system that needs to be stopped.
