Default BT and DM?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, so I picked up a new laptop the other day and after the reloading process I got around to adding the Pearl as a BT device. Works GREAT as a BT modem for my laptop for those cases where the hotel, airport, etc might not have internet.

Anyways, my question is - in Desktop Manager I see the option to set it up for bluetooth, however, it appears the option cannot be selected. I can only use the backup and other features via the direct USB connection - is this true?

Nevermind, I found the problem for anyone who might have this.

I was using a third party bluetooth stack (Toshiba which came pre-installed on this new laptop).

Simply delete any third party BT stack then install the Windows stack in its place. This did the trick and now DM works fine via BT. Go figure.
