I was using java library to test, and I got a wiimote.

Connecting wiimote was very straightforward, and my code worked. But then I turned wiimote off.

Now it will connect, and my program will detect, and wiimote lights up led 1, but thats it. I guess library can't read any data off my wiimote. I tried various programs, and it was all same. Nothing could read my wiimote. :(

Windows 7 64 bit, using Microsoft stack.

Yes, I did remove device each time so its a "new device" each time.

Hi,

Have you tried Smoothboard to see whether it connects? You may use SmoothConnect for the connection.

You may want to post a screenshot of the HID list as described in

Connection is not the issue. I can reliably connect wiimote each time. The issue is trying to make program read wiimote data. It worked only once.

Hmm I removed all HID devices, and tried again. It worked. I'm pretty sure it means I'd have to remove it each time. Pretty lot of work for just one device. :)

Too bad wiimote connector program don't work even ran as admin.

Yeah, you will need to remove the device each time you reconnect.

You can just use SmoothConnect and it will help you connect your Wiimotes automatically.

Sorry, not paying for anything in order to develop a program. Nor will I tell future users to get another program to use my upcoming program.

Ironically I HAVE been removing device each time, but I had previously added other wiimotes, so drivers for those was still there so it was in conflict with new one. I don't know why it worked for first time, but it works reliably now.
