Hi Guys,

Bluetooth listener throws an exception when activating Start method.

I have seen others with the same problem, but without any solution...

Can you help ? with most of the guy's it was on a 64bit machine, while i have a win7 ultimate 32bit (i tried to run the sample out of the box and failed).

I work with VS2010 with the current version (3.3 i assume) of the 32Feet Bluetooth library for C# (.Net 4.0).

Another question: i need to provide a service Guid when i instanciate the Bluetooth listener object, does that Guid has anything to do with the bluetooth device

guid, or can i just supply some bogus Guid that VS2010 gave me ? that issue is not at all clear.

Thank you,

Can you run the BluetoothChat2 sample and see what it reports.

For the UUID question see  So yes (have VS) create a brand new unique UUID.Guid.
