I'm using the drivers supplied by MSI. Also, I found something about a file-patcher that is a work-around for this problem, but the site that it was hosted on was asked to remove it by WIDCOMM. SEE http://www.jonsguides.com/bluetooth/ AND http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/archive/index.php/t-127539.html

You should have received a key from MSI when downloading the new version. They have to supply it otherwise your Bluetooth will not work. Contact MSI for this.

As for Jon's Guides, the instructions are good, but the problem is that some companies see them as a copyright violation. I used to have these here, but decided to remove last year, before anyone could complain...

I got the new version of the MSI drivers through a utility called Live Update 3 that compares the version on my computer to existing (newer) versions on their site. I didn't see anything about a key. Would they give me a license.dat file that they the error points to? Anyway, I got the patched files from http://mirrors.phorever.com/jonscaife/btfiles.zip and seem to be working fine now, BT icon went from red to white, and I was able to pair my phone. I haven't had time to test all the fucntions yet.

UPDATE: Went to MSI's site to gain a security key by entering my BD address and this is the response I got.

"Dear Sir/Madam,

Thanks for you contacting MSI technical support.

To upgrade you Bluetooth device with BD Address, you need to get security key from Widcomm (Broadcom) web. Though we are sorry Broadcom suddenly shutdown the registry web without notice. MicroStar is contacting Broadcom to resolve this issue. Please kindly download driver 1.3.1 to install from MSI website:
http://www.msi.com.tw/html/active/2004/widcomm/bluetooth_v1.3.1.zip

This version (1.3.1) will not check security code, but do not support HID function. Please notes MSI web for further information. Your patience is highly appreciated. If you still have any question, please feel free to let us know."

Please Help!

I'm quite stuck. My bluetooth adapter won't work. It has the exact problem that is described above.

I have a Iogear GBU301W1. I downloaded the drivers from the website and have tried for several hours now to get it working with no luck.

I've called tech support, but the person on the phone wasn't very helpful and when I called back a couple of times to try to get someone differet, he was the only person.

You're my last hope! Is there anything else that I can try?

To the letter. I've gone over them a few times.

Still nothing :(

I had the bluetooth adapter working in an old 98 box a while ago, so I know that it works. It has to be something with windows.

Any ideas?

Hey NetSoerfer!

I'm eager to try to follow the steps you gave us because I've tried everything... nothing worked here. XP sp2 is causing trouble with bluetooth. I have a Nokia 6230..

Right, the thing now is: I went to Microsoft support (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;pt-br;883258 - in PORTUGUESE)
and did what they told me to; I deleted one thing from the registry:

this: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{e0cbf06c-cd8b-4647-bb8a-263b43f0f974}


Now I can't do this thing you said:

"Now go to the Device Manager, right click on the "Generic Bluetooth Radio" and select "update
driver". Don't let Windows XP connect to the internet, then select "Choose software from a list
or specified location". In the next window, select "Don't search, but select the driver to install.
"
"

When I go to the Device Manager, I can't find the "generic bluetooth radio" anymore....
I hope you can help me!

Having the same problem as described above..

Tried following the instructions to the letter, and everything goes along just fine until near the end ("Click next until the new driver is installed. Now the WIDCOMM system tray icon should be blue-white aswell, activated and ready to use")..

That's where things go pear shaped.. It's still disabled.. (The ms bluetooth logo (the active one) is gone though..) And if I try to activate the WIDCOMM one, then I get that damn license message again..

Finally got it alll working with BT Class 1 dongle but now I'm up to COM45 on the ports. Anyone know how to get them back to more familiar numbers? I guess it doesn't really matter, but it is just annoying.

Looks like David already answered in posts further down....and back. Thanks.

I followed these instructions and still can't get the WIDCOMM driver working. I have the Bluetooth tray icon, but it's red, not white. Nothing happens when I try to open "My Bluetooth places" and when I right-click on the tray icon and select "Start using Bluetooth", I get the license error. If I double-click, I get an error stating "Bluetooth device not found. Please verify that your Bluetooth device is properly connected and turned on."

I'm using a CNet Technology Inc. Bluetooth dongle. I downloaded and installed the latest drivers several times, with no luck. I'm attempting to connect to a Nokia 7610 phone (which can connect fine to other Bluetooth devices).

@zoldar: In Control Panel > Bluetooth Devices, go to the Options tab and uncheck "Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area". I don't believe you can remove the MS Control Panel entry.
