      I really need help. I have Windows Vista on my computer and I have been able to connect the Wiimote easily before. So yesterday a Alert comes up saying I need to update my windows and I do. Well the Wiimote will not connect :'(. It will not even come up saying it has been discovered. Is there anything you have to do after an update?

How are you connecting the Wiimote to your computer? Which Bluetooth stack are you using?

If you are using the MS Bluetooth stack, are you using Smoothboard's SmoothConnect to automatically connect the Wiimote.

Maybe you have to remove the HID devices related to the Wiimote and connect your Wiimotes again.

We have a machine here running the latest updates for MS Windows Vista and it works fine.
