Default Connecting a Bluetooth peripheral to the Microsoft Bluetooth Transceiver/Dongle (W2000-XP)

Connecting a Bluetooth peripheral to the Microsoft Bluetooth
Transceiver/Dongle (W2000-XP)
Especialy a Sony Ericsson T610

Original configuration :
Desktop PC under Windows XP Pro SP1 with the Bluetooth patch, BT
Intellipoint and BT Intellitype.

Two months ago, I bought the nice MS Bluetooth Desktop for my home PC. It
quite a good set as the keyboard and the mouse are very comfortable to use
and efficient concerning operating range. The only thing that used to make
me sad was the monstrous power consumption of the mouse (3weeks with the
included Energizer).
That's what I thought before I got another Bluetooth peripheral..

When I thought about changing my cell phone, I turned myself to the new
Sony-Ericsson T610 for its Bluetooth support.

The anger against Microsoft came when I tried to establish the connection
between my phone and my PC. I successfully installed the Ericsson software
pack but the highly wanted "My Bluetooth places" icon was still not
appearing; and all that I was able to establish was a remote access
connection using my phone as a modem.

Searching on Internet, I found that this fail was due to a lack in the
Microsoft's Bluetooth stack that is supplied with the BT Desktop.
Actually, it is not able to manage other profiles than the "HID profile"
(Human Interface Device) used for mice, keyboards. this leading to the fact
that "as it" the Microsoft Bluetooth package can't be used to connect other
peripherals than the supplied mouse and keyboard.
I also found that the MS dongle is using the CSR chipset that is used in
most of dongles such as TDK, D-link. which are also using the same stack
base from Widcomm.
My new aim became to use the Widcomm BT Stack (v1.4x as 1.3x doesn't support
the HID profile) with my Microsoft dongle.

Still surfing I was dropped on this page :

Here is an quick translation how to install widcomm 1.4.1.4

First download Acer 1.3.2.7 and Dell 1.4.1.4 Software.

ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/net.../bt500_1327.exe

http://support.ap.dell.com/ap/en/fi...1611&location=2

Extract all Files.
Copy license.dat from Acer into extracted Dell-Directory.
Begin install
After Install, software ask for license.dat or licensekey, cancel this step.
Donīt click bluetooth-icon!!
Now we need an Hexeditor.
Open btsec.dll (into c:\windows\system32) with hexeditor.
Patch this bytes:

Offset 0x43EE old Value: 75 4E new Value: 9090
Offset 0x4402 old Value: 75 3A new Value: 9090
Offset 0x4408 old Value: 74 39 new Value: 9090

Save btsec.dll and try it out.
If you canīt edit btsec.dll kill btstac~1.exe before in task manager

This perfectly worked under the Windows 2000 Pro SP3 laptop that I use at
work, but I didn't tried to connect my BT Desktop as it requires
Intellipoint/type for Bluetooth which only works under XP. But the phone BT
connection is OK.

After testing the Widcomm stack under W2000, I came home to make it work on
my WinXP desktop computer which was announced to be much more rejoicing as
the MS dongle drivers are included in the XP BT Patch.

Here is the way I make it work :

Required :
MS Bluetooth Patch for XP installed
MS Intellipoint and Intellitype for Bluetooth installed
The dongle unplugged.

Contrary to windows 2000, as XP is updated for Bluetooth it has the drivers
for the MS Bluetooth Transceiver. So they've got to be deleted from the
source because we need to use the one included in the Widcomm stack.
To do that just look for the files containing "Bluetooth" in C:\Windows\Inf\
and delete them.

Then the process for the Widcomm installation is the same as for Windows
2000

But the problem is that, to work fine, the mouse and the keyboard need
Intellipoint and Intellitype which cannot be installed if the MS XP Patch
for Bluetooth is not present.
So you need to install it first to put Intellipoint and Intellitype and then
delete it (and the inf files) to install the Widcomm drivers.

That's the way It work, and fine.
The next step is to make it work so fine with Linux.

That's why the Logitech, Belkin and Bluetake mice and keyboards are going to
be a great hit. They come with more standard USB adapters, including widcomm
software and all profiles you'll need to use mobile phones, LAN access and
more.

Also, 1.4.2.10 corrects an audio problem in 1.4.1.6 when installed on XP:

When recording voice audio to a PC from a BT headset mic, the playback speed
of the file is accelerated. Also, when I recorded audio/video from my
webcam while using the BT headset, the video playback was also accelerated.

This problem appears to occur only in XP. W2K users don't seem to be
effected.

Once I copied the audio drivers from the new Widcomm release, the playback
problems were corrected. I've also noted some definite improvements in the
overall audio quality with my BT headset.

It looks like the analogue to digital codec/drivers have been enhanced.
Static, hiss and break-up in the audio that I previously experienced seems
to be greatly reduced. Although it's still a little early, "high CPU"
doesn't seem to be degrading BT headset performance under this new release.

DON'T DO THE CUT AND PASTE!

I lost the ability to establish concurrent connections with my phone and
headset. Also, sync'ing via PC Suite became unstable. Replacing the
original drivers wouldn't fix the problem. I had to roll back my system to
a point prior to this event to get everything working again.

It looks like you need to do the full installation.

To be fair there are other things you can do with the Microsoft software.

You can use your phone as a dial-up modem.
You can connect to bluetooth printers
You can create a serial port connection to the phone using software that
uses the Microsoft APIs.

I use a MS bluetooth mouse at work and can use the MS stack to connect
to my T68i with Floats Mobile Agent. This lets you send/receive SMS,
organise phonebook, initiate calls, send files to the phone
TDKMobile also works in this way.

My boss bought a new Sony Vaio Centrino laptop with BLuetooth built in.
This had the MS stack preinstalled and setting it up to dial up to his
T610 worked pretty flawlessly.

Of course with Widcomm you can use the FTP Profile to browse the
contents of the phone, and do proper PIM Synchronisation with Outlook.
But the MS stack isn't totally useless.

That's what I thought before I got another Bluetooth peripheral..

When I thought about changing my cell phone, I turned myself to the new
Sony-Ericsson T610 for its Bluetooth support.

The anger against Microsoft came when I tried to establish the connection
between my phone and my PC. I successfully installed the Ericsson software
pack but the highly wanted "My Bluetooth places" icon was still not
appearing; and all that I was able to establish was a remote access
connection using my phone as a modem.

Searching on Internet, I found that this fail was due to a lack in the
Microsoft's Bluetooth stack that is supplied with the BT Desktop.
Actually, it is not able to manage other profiles than the "HID profile"
(Human Interface Device) used for mice, keyboards. this leading to the fact
that "as it" the Microsoft Bluetooth package can't be used to connect other
peripherals than the supplied mouse and keyboard.
I also found that the MS dongle is using the CSR chipset that is used in
most of dongles such as TDK, D-link. which are also using the same stack
base from Widcomm.
My new aim became to use the Widcomm BT Stack (v1.4x as 1.3x doesn't support
the HID profile) with my Microsoft dongle.

QuickHowto Widcomm 1.4.1.4
Here is an quick translation how to install widcomm 1.4.1.4

First download Acer 1.3.2.7 and Dell 1.4.1.4 Software.

ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/net.../bt500_1327.exe

http://support.ap.dell.com/ap/en/fi...1611&location=2

Extract all Files.
Copy license.dat from Acer into extracted Dell-Directory.
Begin install
After Install, software ask for license.dat or licensekey, cancel this step.
Donīt click bluetooth-icon!!
Now we need an Hexeditor.
Open btsec.dll (into c:\windows\system32) with hexeditor.
Patch this bytes:

Offset 0x43EE old Value: 75 4E new Value: 9090
Offset 0x4402 old Value: 75 3A new Value: 9090
Offset 0x4408 old Value: 74 39 new Value: 9090

Save btsec.dll and try it out.
If you canīt edit btsec.dll kill btstac~1.exe before in task manager

This perfectly worked under the Windows 2000 Pro SP3 laptop that I use at
work, but I didn't tried to connect my BT Desktop as it requires
Intellipoint/type for Bluetooth which only works under XP. But the phone BT
connection is OK.

After testing the Widcomm stack under W2000, I came home to make it work on
my WinXP desktop computer which was announced to be much more rejoicing as
the MS dongle drivers are included in the XP BT Patch.

Here is the way I make it work :

Required :
MS Bluetooth Patch for XP installed
MS Intellipoint and Intellitype for Bluetooth installed
The dongle unplugged.

Contrary to windows 2000, as XP is updated for Bluetooth it has the drivers
for the MS Bluetooth Transceiver. So they've got to be deleted from the
source because we need to use the one included in the Widcomm stack.
To do that just look for the files containing "Bluetooth" in C:\Windows\Inf\
and delete them.

Then the process for the Widcomm installation is the same as for Windows
2000

But the problem is that, to work fine, the mouse and the keyboard need
Intellipoint and Intellitype which cannot be installed if the MS XP Patch
for Bluetooth is not present.
So you need to install it first to put Intellipoint and Intellitype and then
delete it (and the inf files) to install the Widcomm drivers.

That's the way It work, and fine.
The next step is to make it work so fine with Linux.

Hi

Thanks for the instructions they worked perfectly as I had exactly the same
scenario, I just have one small problem, that i hoped you might be able to
help with. Are you still able to use intellitype and intellipoint after
this procedure as everytime I start them up I get an error message saying
the service could not start as OS updates have not been installed.

Thanks

Connecting a Bluetooth peripheral to the Microsoft Bluetooth
Transceiver/Dongle (W2000-XP)
Especialy a Sony Ericsson T610

Original configuration :
Desktop PC under Windows XP Pro SP1 with the Bluetooth patch, BT
Intellipoint and BT Intellitype.

Two months ago, I bought the nice MS Bluetooth Desktop for my home PC. It
quite a good set as the keyboard and the mouse are very comfortable to use
and efficient concerning operating range. The only thing that used to make
me sad was the monstrous power consumption of the mouse (3weeks with the
included Energizer).
