Hi, first post, no surprise considering my question.

Well I am getting that error, have tried all the solutions from the boonjin wiki. 

I am running Win7 32-bit with a microsoft bluetooth stack.

Any help is would be great, I am eager to try out the IR pen i just made!

Hi,

Are you using Smoothboard's SmoothConnect for the connecting the Wiimote?

You may want to tell us your observations when Smoothboard is trying to connect your Wiimote.

Thanks.

At first I was using one of the older versions that didnt have it so I only connected through windows.  Then i got smoothboard2 and started using that.  When smoothconnect runs, there is a mac address shown and it says 1 found 1 connected, launches the app but the error message pops up.  I tried to set it for two wiimotes (using only one still) but that didnt work (read that somewhere).  In smoothboard when i switched the primary wiimote, the light on the bottom would switch to the second position though. When trying to connect through smoothconnect in multi mode in gets stuck in learning wiimotes, though i guess cuz its searching for another remote. 

Attached is a picture of my device manager.  Maybe I was mistaken and that it is using a broadcom stack and not microsoft?

Hi,

It means that you are able to connect the Wiimote but when Smoothboard launches, there is an error message. And a single Blue LED of the Wiimote remains lighted up.

Have you tried the Wiimote on another computer before?

Also, you may want to try to remove and reinsert the batteries and press the Red Sync button instead of the 1and2 buttons.

Idk for whatever reason it just started working.. does the wiimote need to be set in its spot when smoothconnect is running?

I just want to say thank you.  This is really an amazing way to utilize an easily available technology and a great way to add touchscreen abilities to any computer.  I am not great at programming but if there is any way you need help, please let me know. 

Next thing I'm going to do is make a pressure sensitive ir pen

PS I navigated to this page using my 'stylus'
