Hello, I am Lin Duquette. I am not a computor guy. After several attempts I think I have really messed this up. I am pretty much stuck at step 1. I bought my rocketfish bluetooth dongle and tried to use the built in windows bluetooth driver by not inserting the cd that came with the dongle. Everything installed, windows said it was working properly however there was no bluetooth icon in the system tray. So I installed the cd and all the software and presto bluetooth icon in the system tray. I continued to follow the tutorial instruction, I found linvor, paired, wrote down the com ports. Then I went to install the firmware and it failed. I read a few post, sounds easy use the windows driver. I am not using the windows driver, it is the broadcomm or widcomm or rocketfish driver that came with it. I have spent several hours over several days trying in vain to use the windows driver.
I have tried uninstalling the driver and rebooting and connecting the dongel: it says new hardware, installed rocketfish driver.
I tried update driver; choose from a disk; but I can't find a windows driver. I can find a windows bluetooth driver using explorer but even when I type that into the box it says that's not a driver.
I searched out and deleted every file I could find that said rocketfirsh or broadcomm, went into the registry and did the same. Now I got a rocketfish bluetooth device that it says is installed properly and is working propoerly but is not connected.
I would very much not like to have to buy a new computor.
Can anyone help this guy who went way too far before asking for help.
