I just thought I would share this in case anyone else is trying to buy/authenticate a copy of BlueSoleil right now.  I purchased a license and found I was unable to connect via the internet to authenticate it.  I sent a help request to BlueSoleil and they just wrote me back.  This is where it gets interesting.

The recent earthquake has severed the seabed cable between Taiwan and the mainland, so it's not a software/antivirus/firewall issue... there [/i]literally[/i] is no connection to their authentication server right now.  They say they are working to correct this issue.

They also included the manual authentication tool in the email reply.  Unfortunately, that has not been able to connect for me either.  I guess mother nature wins this round.

So if you're trying to buy/authenticate BlueSoleil, be patient.  Unforeseen technical difficulties, and what-not.

Hello everyone,

I apologize for having a noobish technical question as a first post, but this looks like a great community and I
look forward to learning from everyone.

I bought a used Nintendo Wii Remote (wiimote) at GameStop and am using a micro bluetooth USB dongle. I am able to get my pc (running Windows XP Pro) to detect and connect to the Wiimote (see pictures below) but attempting to run any application (such as Glovepie) results in either a crash or consistently erroneous input (such as always pulling on one direction). Also, when attempting to run such an application, all four blue LED indicators on the wiimote flash (as they do when connecting).

Following one of the online tutorials here I see that my micro bluetooth USB dongle is using the Microsoft stack. Has anyone had a similar issue, or does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Mr. Clean

P.S.  If it helps any, the bluetooth dongle I'm using is one of these, though mine didn't come with a disk of any sort.  I just plugged it in and Windows recognized it.  I'd never had any bluetooth device installed before this either.
