I am having problems with my Bluetooth connection to my PC.

I am wanting to snyc via activesync using my bluetooth.

The only problem is that when i follow all the instructions through, the Activesync Bluetooth in WIDCOMM gives me COM10 for activesync.

This is no good, as activesync will only look for COM 1 - 9!


I was using the SP2 version of BT until i uninstalled it.

Is there a way to re-asign this COM port, or totally RESET any pervious bluetooh settings, so my next avalible COM port is 4 or 5???

I would go back to the SP2 Bluetooth drivers. I have it working fine. Don't forget that you will get two serial ports - one inbound and one outbound.
I have outlined the full process on my web site:
