Installing Bluetooth Peripheral Device

I thought, that I had my HTC Touch Pro, Vista x64 SP2 and Outlook 2007 all set up – and then come some stupid update and everythings seems to be back to start.

After switching on bluetooth on my laptop I get a nice looking Vista dialog stating “Installing Bluetooth Peripheral Device” – NOT! I mean, Vista couldn’t find an apropriate driver 🙁

OK, so there is help; you just have to do it yourself.

  • ignore the failing “Installing Bluetooth Peripheral Device” dialog
  • open the device manager and open the properties for the not corret installed bluetooth device
  • select “reinstall driver” and select to manually supply the driver
  • browse to “Microsoft Corporation” as the manufacturer (beware: there is also just “Microsoft”, which doesn’t do!) and the select either Windows Mobile 6.0 or 6.1

that all – why can’t Vista do all this on his own?
