Question Where are drivers for bluetooth modem connection?

Please Login to Remove!

I am unable to get past the point of pairing my 8320 with my PC. When I do, it attempts to locate drivers that it can't find. In the FAQ, it mentions something about the "Research In Motion" folder in the Programs Folder but I couldn't find anything there.

I tried completely uninstalling the desktop software and reinstalling as the FAQ suggests, still didn't work.

Since it can't find the driver, it doesn't recognize the 8320 as a modem.

Anyone know how to get past this?

I am using:
-Vista Home Premium (32)
-Desktop Manager v4.2.2.14

It only works with Widcomm BT. Replace your currently installed BT drivers. This thread helped me get it going:
