  1. Unable to specify COM port in Bluetooth Settings


    Ok so I have a wireless Bluetooth device. It has worked fine connected to a windows 7 and 8 computer. Now I am trying it on 10. For the software I wrote for it to work properly I need to be able to specify which COM port it uses when connecting.


    In windows 7 and 8 I would then go to "Bluetooth settings", click "New Connection", and then follow the setup wizard. Here I would be able to set the device to be in Dev mode and specify the COM port to always use. In the new windows 10 "Bluetooth settings" program I can not find a way to do this.


    Also I have two different "Bluetooth settings" programs show up in the start menu. One I can open up and it will show my device, but I am unable to do what I mentioned above. The other program with this name has the same icon as what is on my Windows 7 and 8 machines, but gives me the error "unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)"


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  3. Problem w/ActiveSync Toshiba Bluetooth Stack/AT&T Tilt WM6/Tablet PC w/ MS XP SP3 Tablet 2005 OS

    Bluetooth syncing is a tough issue. the main cause is ActiveSync.

    First thing you have to do is remove all local services wich are connected to a COM-port.

    Secondly add a new Serial Service and select a comport. Make sure this is the first Bluetooth Serial Port with a COM-port. THIS IS ESSENTIAL.

    Next you have to set the Connection Settings in ActiveSync for the COM-port you just made in the Bluetooth Stack.

    On your device remove your PC as a Bluetooth Device. And try again.
