Welcome to Geekzone. Have you installed the software from the CD accompanying the Bluetooth adapter?

The Bluetooth icon will only show up if a compatible adapter is plugged in. In case of USB adapters not all all of them are supported by the Windows XP SP2 standard driver, in which case you must use the software received of that specific hardware.

According to the documentation, my TDK USB dongle is suposed to be supported by Win XP SP2. TDK Systems even gives som advice in their docs that one could use the stack from Windows. So its actuallt not supported?

thanks alpha geek

TDK adapters are really good. I used to have one. I suspect it could be something related to drivers, or your specific Windows install being corrupt.
