I reinstalled my laptop that I have been using for my Wiimote-experiences so I thought it would be a nice opportunity to write down every step needed to get up and running.

I have a HP-laptop (ZE2229EA) about 4 years old, running a clean install of Windows XP.
Patched to Servicepack 3 and all latest available from windows update as of yesterday(2008-07-22)

Here is all steps I had to do to get Smoothboard by BoonJin going.


Installed Bluetooth with windows default drivers (I have a billionton adapter)

Paired Wiimote with computer without passcode, pressing button 1 & 2 on the Wiimote during pairing process.

Tried to start up Smoothboard with the following error: 0xc0000135

Download: DirectX SDK from Microsoft as this is a known problem that DirectX SDK is missing.

I install DirectX SDK (that also installs .NET 1.1 Framework)

Try to start Smoothboard again and gets the error that I need .NET 2.0

Download: .NET 2.0

Try to start Smoothboard and this time it starts up OK without any error messages.

Blue LEDS stops flashing on Wiimote at this time and is just "on", they have been flashing all time since pairing.

Initial test with calibration shows me that it works just fine




Conclusion:

Not very hard, just a few things to download.
It probably helps out having a good Bluetooth dongle ;)

Correct me if wrong but..
If when you where at the Windows update, instead of clicking 'Express', you clicked 'Custom', after the search then select all available updates (may need to be done manually), finally selecting and completing all updates (a few for hardware (printers etc) may not complete as hardware unavailable). You then should have everything you need and will not need to do the two additional DirectX and .Net updates.

True - I choose not to go for advanced options (like I usually do), I went the same way I suspect most people do...

It is worth doing as a number of updates, Billy Boy and his Homies doesn't see as critical for Microsoft applications are in fact critical or semi critical for a number of other applications.
