When I opened Desktop Manager and clicked on Options, Connection Settings, the BT settings were not accessible.
The notebook is running under Widows XP and has Kingston dongle pertruding from a USB port. The dongle is radiating a shinny blue color so it must be turnred on. On the desktop there is an icon labled My Bluetooth Places. I clicked on the icon and learned WIDCOM Bluetooth software v188.8.131.520 is installed and configured to let other Bluetooth devices discover it.
Why am I unable to access the Bluetooth settings on Desktop Manager? How can I make my Blackberry Pearl 8100 discover my notebook if I can't get to the settings
