Bluetooth & Connectivity Help Center / Not sure WHAT the problem is...
« on: September 17, 2009, 10:37:20 AM »
I'm no tech wizard, so I'm hoping someone can help me out.  Talk down to me; I need step by step if possible

I have XP Professional and was using the XP default stack.  It worked great for awhile and then it said I'd have to reboot or it might not work correctly, and I often had to restart it to get it to work.  So if it connected with the new Smoothboard connect program and then disconnected for whatever reason I'd have to restart the whole system.

I did previously try all the things in the help thread an couldn't seem to fix my issue with the XP stack.

Alright, so then I got a SMART airliner to use in my room.  It came with a Blue Diamond dongle and Widcomm 5.5.  Widcomm 5.5 doesn't work with the Wiimote.  It runs the Airliner flawlessly.

So I use the Blue Diamond dongle with the XP stack.  Removed everything first, ran a registry cleaner.  Both the Wiimote and Airliner worked fine after restart (although I still got the "your machine may need to reboot for your new hardware to work properly" with the Wiimote).  The thing was that after I shut the machine down for the night and came back, the Airliner would not reconnect at ALL. 

I tried Blue Soliel next, after deleting all the devices from Device Manager (and running registry cleaners again).  Again, everything worked upon initial set-up and then after shutting down for the night it wouldn't work the next morning.  Blue Soliel DIDN'T give me the error message on the Wiimote, but kept sporadically disconecting every 20 min or so and would not connect at all with the new Smoothboard connect program.

I have no idea what to do or try next.  I feel like my options are A) run the Wiiwimote IWB with the annoying connect issue or B) just ditch it and use only the SMART airliner. 

PLEASE help!!

Bluetooth & Connectivity Help Center / Suddenly having connection issues
« on: September 02, 2009, 08:44:19 PM »
I have Windows XP SP2, using the Micro Dongle, which installs automatically using the MS stack.

About 2 or 3 weeks ago I set it up in my classroom.  Everything worked fine.  I'd come in, use the Wiimote Connect, push 1&2 and it'd connect.

Then yesterday I set up to try it out and show someone.   Suddenly I was getting an error message that said it installed but I may need to reboot for it to work properly.  THEN I started getting the constant message that it did not install correctly. 

I've tried just about everything I've read here on the tips, etc.  Updated in Device Manager, etc.

Wiimote Connect won't work at all anymore, I have to go through and add it in the Bluetooth program.  Then if I disconnect and go back into Device Manager under HID>Bluetooth HID Device there's the caution sign.  But I can't update anything it just gives me the option to unistall, which I tried, but when it reinstalled there was apparently another problem?

I don't know.  I'm just flustered and frustrated.  School starts Tues. and I thought I was all set to go.  :(

General Discussion / Cannot download .net framework 3.5 :(
« on: August 15, 2009, 08:00:27 PM »
I have been trying ALL DAY to download the proper framework on my Dell laptop.  It downloads, but EVERY TIME there is an error in the install.  I read something about uninstalling each framework and then reinstalling them one at a time.  I did that and got them all re-installed without a problem. 

Any ideas?
