Hi,

i am trying to develop a bluetooth application using visual studio .NET 2003 for windows xp platform to connect to pdas. I am using a bluetooth dongle to make my personal computer bluetooth-enabled. I am looking for libraries which may be used to enable the creation of a bluetooth application using either VB.NET or c#. If any examples are available, please let me know as well.

THANKS.

I've just come across a similar application.  To the best of my knowledge bluetooth works using the comm ports.  I downloaded a 3rd party comm driver and it was full of comments on bluetooth dropping connections etc.
http://franson.biz/serialtools/guide.asp have a look at that, free for 14 days but it should get you on the right path.
I needed this because .net refuses to acknowledge the WinCEComm control, looks like Microsoft are no longer supporting it.  Let me know what you find.
