    Where is the Bluetooth stack for Windows hidden on Microsoft's webpage?


    We have a bunch of domain PCs where Windows update is blocked, Updates are fed through our servers instead. Because Microsoft has a way of pushing bad, buggy drivers through their update system, which causes breakdowns and downtime, we rightly have that blocked by group policy as well.


    Now, when we have a Bluetooth device we want to install on a machine that did not come with Bluetooth, we can't as the Windows 10 Bluetooth stack is not built into the Windows 10 install image like it should be. We can install the Bluetooth device with drivers we found online, but Windows 10 does not show the Bluetooth service, nor does it have the Bluetooth functionality in its new control panel.


    This is similar to the problem we are having with the Windows IME, so every time we have thoroughly tested and try to update to the new build of Windows 10, The language files, dictionaries and such which allow the IME to actually work have to be transplanted from a non-domain device. IME should have been built into the Windows 10 image from the get-go, not exclusively downloaded through windows update. As a result, those of us who speak more than one language are shot in the foot on every major update because we can't get at the installation files we need to.


    Where can I find offline installers that will permit the proper installation of the Bluetooth stack, for the 1909 and later builds of Windows 10, additionally, where are the offline install files for the IME for Windows 10 for the 1909 and later?

    :)

    Intel 6230 Bluetooth stack

    Wondering if anyone has an intel 6230 wifi + bluetooth mini pcie chip?

    If so, do you happen to have a bluetooth stack for win7 64bit? I've tried both the default Microsoft stack as well as the Intel stack (Proset) but neither have profiles for phone audio (so i can't talk on my phone via bluetooth)

    Any help would be awesome! *Smile Where is the Bluetooth stack for Windows hidden on Microsoft's webpage? :)

    Widcomm or Microsoft Bluetooth Stack

    Hi Sage

    This is the System information from the PC Suite:

    Operating system:

    Microsoft Windows XP

    Build 2600

    Service Pack 2

    Bluetooth stack:

    Microsoft Bluetooth stack

    Version 5.1.2600.2180

    So I DO have the MS Bluetooth stack afterall, but I still can't get a connection.

    There nothing in control panel about Bluetooth devices.

    In System, Device Manager there is listed the following: USB Bluetooth Driver (CSR),

    Bluetooth Virtual Com6 (and 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12), Fujitsu Bluetooth Audio (SCR), USB Bluetooth Driver for SCO Link.

    This is becoming infuriating.

    I am not using BT for any dial up connections either.

    My phone does pick up a BT headset.

    Microsoft Making it Better with Bluetooth Technology v4.0

    Microsoft's Windows 8 announcement introduces native support for Bluetooth v4.0. Bluetooth v4.0 enabled products running the Windows 8 operating system, such as the new Surface tablet, will be Bluetooth Smart Ready products, enabling them to connect to familiar Bluetooth devices, like wireless speakers, and to the next generation of ultra power-efficient Bluetooth Smart products now coming to market.

    Last weeks' Microsoft announcement is an acknowledgement of the massive Bluetooth ecosystem and strong consumer demand for secure, convenient wireless connectivity the technology provides," said Suke Jawanda, Bluetooth SIG CMO. "With Bluetooth v4.0 incorporated into the Windows operating system, hardware and software developers will have increased opportunities to provide new devices, applications, and services for their customers. Securely feeding web services and applications with cloud friendly data via a Bluetooth connection is a key component in the shift to cloud computing and more broadly, the Internet of Things."

    OS-level support for Bluetooth 4.0 technology in Windows 8 allows hardware and software developers to tap into the billions-strong market of Bluetooth products in a scalable way. App developers will be able to use an API to feed data collected from Bluetooth Smart low-energy sensors, like a fitness monitor or medical device, to an application running on a Bluetooth Smart Ready product like the Microsoft Surface.

    The launch of Bluetooth v4.0 unleashed a wave of new Bluetooth Smart and Smart Ready devices which provide manufactures and developers the opportunity to create the next generation of devices and software applications that will transform the way consumers interact with their technology. Microsoft is the latest in a list of companies utilizing Bluetooth v4.0 and the technology's low energy capabilities, a list that also includes major brands like Nike, Samsung, Panasonic, Nintendo, Sony and Ford, among others. Bluetooth technology's massive ecosystem is expected to expand remarkably within the next five years reaching 20 billion cumulative Bluetooth enabled device shipments by 2017.
