I have had great results with my laptop and win vista.
But now I switched to win7 and have some problems.

The first time I try to connect te Wiimote, everything goes fine. I detects it and install it.

But when I disconnect and try to reconnect dubbelclicking the Bluetooth-icoon to add a device, he doesn't "see" the wiimote anymore and doesn't connect.

I use the Windows Bluetooth stack and a Hama-bluetooth radio that is some years old.

When I delete the Wiimote  in the hardware-window off the configuration-window, the bluetooth-radio recognizes the Wiimote again and connects to it.

Now my question is how can I reconnect the Wiimote without deleting first the formally installed things in the configuration window?

Have you tried using SmoothConnect to connect the Wiimote in Windows 7?

If you are connecting manually, you will have to manually delete and reconnect the Wiimote in your Bluetooth devices.
