Urgent help - No Bluetooth Support in XP SP2

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?S2luZyBCbGFo?=, Feb 11, 2006.

  1. I have been trying to solve this problem for weeks, but wherever I post, no
    one replies. Even posts on here have had no replies.

    I have just installed windows xp service pack 2 for the second time. Still
    no bluetooth support. There is no "Bluetooth support" service in
    services.msc, and i have tried almost everything. How do I get it? Is there a
    seperate file I have to download?
    PLEASE HELP!!

    there was something that happened on a machine where i used to work when sp2
    was installed, i ended up having to go download a new driver package at the
    ms site, but i can't find it there right now.... search a bit, and check
    your vendor's site for new drivers.

  3. Thankyou for the reply! I have tried all of those, but still no support. When
    I go to Start > Run and type in "bthprops.cpl", nothing happens. I have
    searched microsoft for nearly an hour now for the bluetooth drivers and still
    nothing. I am in crisis here!
    I cannot use the vendor drivers because they are not supported by the Nokia
    PC Suite (the whole reason for me getting a bluetooth dongle), but the
    microsoft drivers are.
    Looks like I need a miracle..

    Nokia PC suite supports the Widcomm BT drivers. What drivers did your
    dongle come with?

  8. My dongle came with "Belkin" drivers, which seem almost exactly the same as
    the WIDCOMM drivers, but can not whatsoever get them to work with Nokia PC
    Suite.
    People on the Nokia forums suggested i use the microsoft drivers, but
    considering i can't even do this (when Service pack 2 is MEANT to have
    bluetooth support, but somehow doesn't), it seems impossible to get this to
    work!
