Default 8700g Bluetooth box on Desktop Manager

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BT connection with my laptop although it is on COM40. I can't figure out how to configure the connection on Desktop Manager. Some people using the 8700c have said their Desktop Manager has a BT dialog box they can check. I don't see anything. Once I have my connection, how to I get Desktop Manager to recognize the connection? Thanks.

Question

I've never seen a Bluetooth connection for Desktop Manager. Do you have the latest version?

Desktop Manager v.4.1 has the capability for bluetooth sync.

I have successfully paired my USB bluetooth dongle with my 8700g but when I startup Desktop Manager, the option for bluetooth is still shaded out??

Enable BT on BB, then click wheel and select options
For Services, you should see:
Headset
Handsfree
Desktop Connectivity
Wireless Connectivity.
If you do not see the last two, my guess is you have a BES IT policy that denies BT connectivity to desktop.
