If you are connecting the Wiimote manually with the Widcomm Bluetooth stack, you may need to remove the Wiimote device before reconnecting.

Also, you may want to check whether the HID service is running on your computer. This can be done as follows
# In the Start Menu, click Run and enter "services.msc" and click enter.
# In the Service window, find for Human Interface Device Access
# Make sure that the device is started, if not right click and click on Start

You may want to try to use the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack and use Smoothboard's SmoothConnect to help you connect the Wiimote.

You may install the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack with the tool from http://www.bluetoothinstaller.com (http://www.bluetoothinstaller.com)

Hi,

As you are using Windows 7, the Windows Update for device driver installation update is activated by default. The operating system is looking for the drivers online and the Wiimote may be disconnected before the connection has been made successfully.

Please do refer to the Smoothboard User Guide which should solve your issue.

It should be the same. Maybe you would like to try to remove the batteries before trying to connect the Wiimote.


Have you disabled the Windows Update device driver installation as described in the previoust post?

Have you tried uninstalling the listed HID devices?

Do you have another Wiimote to check?

Alternatively, you may try testing your Wiimote on another computer.
