Hello, maybe a dumb question, but I got most things working on the MS stack now so I don't want to cause a meltdown

I have a few USB BT dongles. Can I just install the Widcomm stack out of the box, then uninstall and reinstall the devices on the stack. Will that JUST work?

Thanks

Changing stacks is normally possible technically. See below. However the licensing of Widcomm may prevent what you want to do...


See https://32feet.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Supported%20Hardware%20and%20Software and https://32feet.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Switching%20any%20dongle%20to%20the%20Microsoft%20stack

So mostly just doing >>In Device Manager select the adapter/device for the Bluetooth Radio (see e.g. in Stack Identification), select "Update Driver ...", then "Browse ...", "Let me pick ..." and choose <<. Choosing the driver for the stack you want.
