Question 8700c sync'ing problems with Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8700c that I am trying to synch up with Outlook using the desktop manager. I have installed the Bluetooth adapter using the microsoft drivers on my XP laptop. I can pair the laptop with the blackberry, but when I try to enable the desktop manager to use the bluetooth adapter to begin sync'ing, the desktop manager says the Device Not Found. The Bluetooth drivers have assigned COM9 to the device. In the Device Manager, there are two RIM Virtual Serial Ports assigned COM6 and COM7, and a Standard Serial over Bluetooth Link that is assigned COM9. Somewhere, something is not talking to one another, and I cannot figure out what it is.

Any one experience a similar problem or understand what is going on?
