Angry Add services to BB?

I am still having problems getting the Bluetooth device connection to work. I am able to add the BB to the Windows XP BB devices list, but I am unable to get the BB Desktop Manager to find the BB.

I have been using how to page given on RIM's site. I tried to post the URL here, but I can't b/c I have not posted enough to have that luxery apparantly. Grr. The document node id on their site is 1067250:

Tasks 1-5 work exactly as the page says. However, I cannot get Task 6 step #5. It never finds the BB.

I have looked in the Options|Bluetooth|Options on the BB and all that is listed there for services is Headset and Handsfree. Should I see the Wireless Bypass and Desktop Connectivity listed here? Is that why I cannot pick up the device? Is there any way to add these services? I am not connected to any BES although sympomatically it sounds like these services have been disabled.

I am running a Dell 9400 and BB 8700r running Windows XP Media Edition.
