I am trying to sync my palm treo 650 over bluetooth with my Dell PC. I have windows SP2 and have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

Windows help tells me to open the bluetooth conrol panel but there is none!

What am I missing here?

since about 2 years DELL PCs are preinstalled with the TOSHIBA Bluetooth solution.
You can find a howto on the Toshiba website:

Oh great work ... finally something that might explain what im seeing, Im a netwRok admin and desktop support blah one stop shop

i have An HP dx7200 here with a freshly reinstalled SP2 XPPRO - I have a user with Bluetooth dongle, and IVT bluesoleil (worst bluetooth software known to man i might add) I want to use the windows native Bluetooth to work with nokia pc suite without having to manually connect the phone via bluesolemon... I have mine setup like this and it worked fine.... same pc same OS - but installed off a non HP XPPro cd

when i go to the run command of the problem PC and type btcpl.cpl i get an error that it cannot find the program, my pc it works (go figure) I can only take this info as something to do with HP trying to be tricky and including proprietary bluetooth software..
