Are you using the Windows Bluetooth software or a third party?

If you are using the Windows Bluetooth software you can't connect the PCs since it does not support the required profiles. If you are using a third party software have you configured ICS or Bridge?

I recommend you look in our Bluetooth Guides before proceeding further.
