Hi,

I am using dell inspiron 1525 laptop. I have installed two O.S. 1) Win XP sp3 2) Vista 32 bit.

I have istalled the driver for blutooth (WIDCOMM) according to the O.S. (Sepearate drivers for xp and vista).

Driver got installed properly. Checked in device manager also, its showing driver is working properly.

But When I click on My Bluetooth places icon, an error message pops up as "Error opening windows explorer....".

I can see bluetooth icon in tray also. But its problem while opening my bluetooth places.

Also I am able to recieve files through bluetooth device but I am not able to send any file.

Please jelp me out.

Thanks,
Sujeet

It sounds like those are old drivers or non-compatible. You don't need widcomm drivers unless you have a very specific need - Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista and Windows 7 will recognise most Bluetooth devices without any third party software...
