Sorry to be the first one that needs support ;) but...
1) i installed a bluetooth receiver and paired the Wiimote, OK
2) the Wiimotetest.exe is working perfect, all buttons show up: OK
3) i installed the SDK, OK
4) However, when i run the WiiMutlipointgrid.exe program, it displays an error "Cannot find a wii remote: Error reading data fromm Wiimote...is it connected?"

How come?
I did not modify anything yet. Should a start compiling first?

i had the same problem. It seems that the version of the WiiLib that Johnny uses is a little different from the one on codeplex. i modified my connect() in wiimote.cs and i talked about out it in

besides, its 20 times as fun when you start writing your own stuff into the already provided examples!

Details, details. Things to do. Things to get done. Don't bother me with details, just tell me when they're done.

At one time, my beloved Windows XP installed some crazy thing called and "unidentified HID device" or something similar. This happened after I restarted with the BT dongle in the machine. Immediately my older 3.something BlueSoleil could not connect to my Wiimote (earlier, it was recognized as a Joystick type HID device).

Unplugging and replugging the BT dongle was no help, nor was deleting the newly found useless device. Rescanning was of no avail, and the computer behaved like the DS9K it was designed to be.

I installed the latest 5.something Blusoleil software, and since, everything works OK again. (please note, 5.something BlueSoleil only works with one type of BT radio chip, check the release notes.)

My Wii remote and Bluetooth experience spans all of ... today.

I am having a similar problem when attempting to run the finger tracking demo. The error message there is: "Cannot find a wii remote. No available wiimote not found."

I saw that some folks had luck running the wiimotelib test application, so I tried that also. I received the following error message: "Wiimote not found in HID device list."

I am using a Jabra A320s USB BT dongle. I know that the wiimote is connected and communicating with my computer, because the 4 LEDs on the wiimote are continuously flashing, and the wiimote shows up in my "device neighborhood." When I look at the wiimote's status on the laptop, the received byte count increments by 8 each time I press a button on the wiimote.

I have noticed that if I try to add a BT device via the Windows (XP home, sp2) control panel, no devices can be found.

I am a Java guy, so the source code is not THAT foreign to me, and I could probably set up a development environment that would allow me to debug the applications and see why my setup is failing, but I thought that I would post here first to get the expert's opinions.

I have a very fun project that I want to work, and I'm running into this road-block early on.

Any suggestions?

I too had the same problem of obtaining an error message when running the grid program. I got a "path not found." I followed guerwan's advice and downloaded Blue Soleil. Unfortunately the program caused my BT dongle to stop working, but I think that's because I have Vista (Uggh!). Interesting enough, I uninstalled Blue Soleil, and my Wiitestremote program worked perfectly. Now I'm stuck on where to go from here.
