Default 8800 Bluetooth Driver for Vista???

Please Login to Remove!

I have a new 8800 (Cingular) and am running MS Windows Vista Business. When I try try to pair my 8800 with my PC via bluetooth it doesn't find a Bluetooth driver for the BB. I have had it search the 4.2 CD that came with my 8800 - no luck. Anyone have this problem and/or know how to correct it?

Thanks

You don't load BT drivers for devices. You need the BT driver for your BT adapter in your PC and then you pair with a BT device. Drivers are for devices directly attached to your PC.

I'm not sure if this is the case with the 8800 as I haven't tried this myself but with all former BT BB's you've had to use the Microsoft BT driver for your adapter and not the OEM driver. There's a RIM knowledgebase article on this.
