I just wanted to give an update.
I have 3 mobile computer (2 Tablet PCs running Win 7, 1 Win XP laptop).
I uninstalled the Toshiba BT Stack on one of my Tablet PCs, I made a small mistake in running my application, I forgot to copy the dlls.
With the dlls properly copied over, the application did work perfectly. I managed to have several messageboxes appear with the name of the bluetooth devices in my area. In this case there were 4 devices.
I then tested the same application on both my laptop and the other tablet pc and the following error appeared "No supported Bluetooth protocol stack found".
I will be uninstalling the Toshiba BT stack from the laptop (where I write code in VS) so I can add more functionality.
I will keep this thread updated in terms of what happens.
Here are the things I need to do.
1) Uninstall the Toshiba BT stack on my laptop.
2) Test the application, if it works continue programming.
3) I need the application to allow the user to connection to a BT Device, deal with the pin.
4) Store the COM port number in a variable and then test another application which has the protocols to read from a particular BT device upon knowing the COM port number.
I believe most of the code I need is given here.
@gmlo, the only thing I can think of for you, is to double check that you uninstalled any other stack. From my experience you want to have the Windows Stack, not a 3rd party stack installed. I believe that the 3rd party stack prevents anyone else from accessing
the BT Stack, whereas the Windows BT stack allows others (including your application) to interact with the BT stack.
If anyone has any suggestions for the tasks I am about to complete, please let me know.
