Connection Broken when application aborts

I was having an issue where a bluetooth device could become semi-permanently broken if the application was aborted while they were connected by the 32feet API.  Subsequent attempts to re-connect would fail until I manually removed the device profile through Device Manager or the Bluetooth Devices list.

I have not been able to reproduce the issue since updating to version 3.3.909.0.  Was this a known issue that was solved, or did I just get lucky?

What platform?  Microsoft stack (BluetoothRadio.PrimaryRadio.SoftwareManufacturer?) and Windows desktop or Mobile? Can you remember what the error was?

I've been unable to reproduce this problem by reverting, my apologies for the uselessly vague error report.  I will let you know if I can reproduce it again, but otherwise I think we need to ignore it for the time being.

I am using InTheHand.Net.Bluetooth.Msft.WindowsBluetoothRadio on Windows 7 64bit in a 32 bit process.

Thanks for letting us know.

BTW if the remote device only allows one connection then you'd have to wait the Link Supervision timeout before you could connect to it again -- probably 20seconds.
