Bluetooth is designed to be a cable replacement, so most bluetooth devices that you can buy for your PC have a control application that comes with them. With that application you can set up a Serial connection between your two machines and then all you would have to do is write two Serial applications, using either VB or C++, which ever one you are more comfortable with.

If you get an SDK for the Bluetooth device you are using from the manufacturer than you can control the Bluetooth radio more directly. You should then use the language that bests fits with the SDK.

Hope this helps.

A great product to use with VB is Mobile VB
http://www.appforge.com

You can get a trail 30 day trial from the web-site - believe me its worth it - there are heaps of
examples and tutes to work through.
I'm a pretty experienced VB coder and it took me about 1/2 hour to create an Hello World application
and deploy it onto my PDA - sweet!
