Okay, I know this has been done to death - but all the solutions online I found haven't worked for me =(
I'll try to make this as easy to understand as possible =D

I'm On Vista 32bit
I have the A1016 (http://www.accessory4you.com/other/pcac/PCAC247-1B.jpg)
I'm using some sort of widcomm driver, but it seems windows is doing the software.
So, here's what it looks like:



The keyboard shows up simply as "Keyboard", it sits at "Connecting To Device" for a while and then comes up with error message 0x800004005, in won't connect.

My bluetooth works, I'm using a logitech wireless mouse.
Some fixes show to right click on the "Keyboard" icon, click properties and in services tick something, but unfortunatly - no services show up.

Other fixes appear to use something that looks like this for bluetooth:



My laptop uses this - but my desktop doesn't... Hmmm...

Please help, I've been searching for a solution for days.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
If you need any extra info, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks for the reply.

No, it doesn't get that far. It just tells me that pairing has failed.

This might be it.. seems a number of people have a similar problem

1. When it's at the point saying connecting to device, i type 123456 and enter on the number pad of the bluetooth keyboard.
2. Windows will change wizard pages and ask for a keycode
3. Type 123456 in the box on your laptop/desktop keyboard

Darn, does nothing.
Interestingly though it seems (though I'm not 100%) that when I do it shortly after it says that it was taking to long to respond?

Ah! Just to see if it works if I type anything I pressed random buttons and it asked me for a code!
Success!

But what do I type in?
I'll try 123456

I tried 123456 but it failed. And I can't seem to get it working again...

The same as you typed on the keyboard 123456 and then _enter_ on the keyboard
and then it _should_ ask for the same on the computer

Ah! Perfect! Thank you so much!

It's paired now. I'll see if there is any software to get some keys working...
