I have just bougth a new wiimote, the wiimote was found and connected successfully with the bluetooth, but when I tried to start smoothboard (and also wiimotewhiteboard), I received the following message: "Error reading data from Wiimote...is it connected?"
Also I have an old wiimote that still works without errors with both softwares.
I have looking the answer on the web, without success.
 
How I can fix this problem? Thanks for your help. :P

you will need to go into the device manager under the heading Human Interface devices and uninstall all Bluetooth virtual/ HID devices before you connect your new wiimote.  You should also try to pull out and replace the batteries in the wiimote to flush the memory in the wiimote before connecting

Hope that helps

Hi,

Most probably your problem occurs because you have installed another Wiimote prior to this. Therefore, the software will look for the first Wiimote if you have unintalled/remove it from your system.

To connect the this new Wiimote in Smoothboard, you can just set the software to connect to multiple Wiimotes. Go to Smoothboard Settings->Wiimote and Set the software to 2 Wiimotes and restart.

Alternatively, you can remove the previously installed Wiimote from your system either by the System Tray Bluetooth icon or via the Device Manager found under Control Panel->System->Hardware

Thank you Boon Jin, I have solved the problem as you said: removing the previously installed Wiimote just deleting it on the classic screen of Bluetooth.
Thanks again! :D

Has anyone found a fix for the Windows 7 issue?
I've had the same problems as many other posters here.
I've tried plenty of different drivers, still cant get the Wii Remote to link correctly.
BUT it works fine in Dolphin!? Using the "pair up" button under "Real Wiimote".... So it would seem like its fixable!

Please help, im trying to emulate over 'neyah

If you are using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack, you may use Smoothboard's SmoothConnect to automatically connect your Wiimotes. As you are using Windows 7, you may need to disable Windows Update for device installation first.

The instructions can be found at http://www.smoothboard.org/manual/Common%20Issues.htm#_Toc274086162

I tried the demo/trial of SmoothConnect and the whiteboard program you offer.... no no avail.
I'm losing hope. When I first started this I was able to get GlovePIE to work with my wii remote, but now it wont interact AT ALL

When I booted Smoothboard, it notified me that "No write access to application folder"
Would "find" my wiimote. The wiimote LEDs continue to flash even though Smoothboard/Smoothconnect says it is connected to the wiimote, and no programs (Smoothboard; GlovePIE; etc) will recognize input from the "connected" wiimote

Have you disabled the Windows Update for device installation?

Also, are you using a genuine Wiimote?
