I'm trying to get this Nokia Wireless Presenter working on my HP Mini 5101.  I managed to get PC Suite installed through compatibility mode with Vista and that seems to be working OK (I can access files/texts/calendar on my phone through the PC).

I have installed Wireless Presenter on the computer, but the trouble I am having is in settign up the serial ports.  All the guides Ive read refer to tabs that don't exist in Windows 7.  I tried adding a few of the Serial Port services and that created COM ports to use but most of them didn't work (how can I tell if it's incoming or outgoing?).  I got one to work so that Wireless Presenter is in listening mode, but once I start the app on my phone (6500 Slide) in just sits there searching and never finds a connection.

Has anyone managed to get this working?

Sorry dude, I won't be able to test this (unless i am reading the nokia site wrong) it requires bluetooth and my laptop doesnt have bluetooth.

This is my first laptop with bluetooth, so I don't have any past experience to draw on. I need to find someone with XP + bluetooth and make sure I can get it working on that first, to rule out any other issues.

This might be a silly question, but is bluetooth enabled? can you pair the device to the computer using windows?

Yes, bluetooth is working fine. I can sync my phone via BT/PC Suite. I guess I really didn't mention in my original post that the only connection I have is BT. I'm not using a cable at all. I believe the problem is to do with incoming virtual serial port but I haven't been able to make any more progress.

I'm sure you probably have read/seen this forum (http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/discussions/board/message?board.id=pcsuite&message.id=7701)

but it talks about the issues with it in XP, maybe you can use the fix/troublshooting in there to make your setup work.
