Hey there, small intro:
I wanted to try and install the wiimote using Windows Vista 64 bit on HP TX2120 without adding any additional software such as bluesoleil.

I started of by reading all your articles and managed to finally add the device using "Bluetooth Devices" and even managed to connect to the Wii using the WiimoteLib  1.3
Of course I couldn't connect to the whiteboard application as it asked me if the wiimote is connected all the time.
After a while I tried the Whiteboard v02 and it worked! it connected to the wii and even managed to scroll down pages using the arrows and reported amount of IR leds that my IR pens were transmitting.

BUT!!! here is my problem: when I do the screen calibration, it does calibrate, and than reports "Tracking Utilization: 35%" and it doesn't work as a mouse. now either I missed something with all your tutorials about how to use the wiimtoe and IR pens as a mouse or it has a problem as well.

Please help me use the IR pen as a mouse as I really would like to use this wonderful invention in my classes.

Thanks a lot, Omri.

Have you got the "Mouse tracking" or similar box ticked???

Its the check box underneith the calibration button on the whiteboard app.

Try updating your HID Bluetooth Drivers (in Device Manager).

Otherwise try:
http://www.uweschmidt.org/wiimote-whiteboard/

Its had more updates and refinements than Johnny Chung Lee's app.
