Hello, this is my first post here, so here I go: I have a phone with which you can play games with the wiimote via bluetooth, I don't have a wii system, but I bought the wiimote last saturday to use it with the phone. As I was surfing the web for instructions to pair the phone and the wiimote, I found out that one can do soo much with it, so I tried to pair the wiimote to my laptop, (it took me a while to do it, since I had some issues with the bluetooth stack) I went through the "add a bluetooth device" process, and it shows the wiimote connected and all 4 led lights blinking at all times (Even when running glovepie), Does this mean that it's also paired? if not, how do I pair it? or do I even need to pair it to make glovepie work?

I downloaded the glovepie program from a website, I tried all versions, but version 0.30 is the only one that works for me, the newer versions do not execute, I double click on the glovepie icon (using version 0.40 or 0.41) and nothing happens, in the task manager, it shows glovepie.exe running, but to no avail. I was wondering If it has anything to do with my system, I'm running windows XP on a MacBook via bootcamp.

Also, using the glovepie 0.30 version,  I tried to run a small script that controls itunes (from the web) it's only 5 or 6 lines long, but when I mapped the A button to the spacebar, and run the program, itunes does not paly/pause (which is what it should do if you enable options to use the spacebar for play/pause) I only tried to make the play/pause command work, but I didn't even get that far. Maybe I don't know how to go through all the process in glovepie in the GUI tab for detecting output and input. Any pointers??
Thanks beforehand!
 :)

I have the same problem. 0.29 works, and 0.30.
But not 0.40 or 0.41, there will not come any window, but there is task GlovePie.exe.
I have Windows XP SP3, DirectX is and all needed should be. Any help to this?

Edit:
Now I tested on Win7, ya! Window popped out, but wiimote isn't working. With 0.30 it works just fine on Win7 and XP.

Edit2: Anyone know how I can talk with Carl Kenner? email, Youtube account etc..

Yeah, that worked! Thanks man.
EDIT: There's another problem. Wiimote disconnects few seconds after when testing. With 0.30 and 0.29 there isn't any problem with connectivy. Edit2: Hmm... Looks working when selected "No auto-bluetooth connect" etc.
