I wrote up instructions and created a video showing how to connect a Wiimote to a Bluetooth-capable Vista machine.  This is for folks using Bluetooth connection directly, not Blue Soleil.

Here is the post with written instructions:

And here's the video itself:

ken

thats brilliant and would be really helpful for a newbie
i *wish* you had posted before i had spent hours learning anf figuring outmyself :)

something else you can maybe add if you do a revision: be careful if your wiimote is low on batteries
maybe that's a general comment that can be applied overall
if your wiimote is low on batteries, it will connect and then quickly disonnect - despite you doing all of the correct steps

Is that so? how low on batteries? 30%? less?
I would like to know because sometimes the application for the whiteboard seems to crash for some reason.

if it is a rule at 30% I don't know - but I think it has more to do with your batteries stamina at the end.

why not just use my software? its free and works on vista too if the bluetoothe operations are handeled by the vista stack.
take a look:
http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-and-bluetooth-connectivity/wiimoteconnect-(searching-beta-testers)-update(0-5)!!-please-test-it/

I will release a new version soon with the ability to "learn" wiimotes. With that technique the software is able to connect 2 wimotes in a metter of seconds.

Please donate via paypal to the WiimoteConnect project
