Installation:
Windows XP +SP2
Bluetrek G2 Wireless Headset
Belkin Bluetooth Adapter Type F8T003 v 2.11 (On loan)
Software F8T003_v2_1.4.2.11

This setup works without any problems.

When I install a new Belkin Adapter (Type F8T008 v.1.2) using downloaded software F8T00X, the installation appears to be complete, but the Adapter fails to find the Headset.

Reverting to the borrowed adapter and carrying out an identical installation, with the original software, all works fine again.

Please has anybody got any ideas? Do the newer Belkin Adapters and drivers have problems with SP2 which earlier versions didn't?

Problem solved.
After installing the new driver software it appears that a REBOOT is required to get the adapter to find and connect with the headset. This was not neccessary with the previous adapter and software. Having done this once, the adapter and the headset can be removed/connected at random and the connection is automatically made when both devices are present and switched on.

Good to hear (no pun intended) it's working. This is probably one of the things a lot of people (including myself) forget to mention...
