Hello, I have a Vakoss bluetooth adapter which came with Widcomm drivers. I plugged it in and installed the latest drivers from Broadcomm's site and attempted to connect my Wiimote to my PC (running Vista). I am able to get my PC to recognize the Wiimote as a bluetooth device through the bluetooth wizard, and I am able to add it as a bluetooth device, however whenever I view it through the bluetooth devices icon in the control panel, it only says its connected for a short while and then is never connected again. I'm trying to use my Wiimote with glovepie as a game controller, and glovepie is also unable to recognize it as well. Any help is appreciated.

Followup PM to kiruyama:
have you resolved your connectivity problem?

yes, it seems I was so fixated on following the tutorials on the net that I was overly concerned with the number of leds flashing on my wiimote, so I repeatedly thought it was failing to be recognized and instead remained in search mode, when it actually had connected just fine. I also had to enable bluetooth fix in glovepie.
