ISSC bluetooth and widcomm software

i have an ISSC bluetooth dongle and have tried many times to use the widdcomm software to use it with my phone applications etc...i get the ususal licence not valid messages...

I can howver use bluesoleil but i do not get proper access to the services for my phone (e.g. virtual ports etc...). I am trying to use a motorola V3 with the service and the support is not there for the DUN server through bluesoleil....why this should be is a mystery as the phone supports that.

I have tried so far every version of widcomm that i can find...same error message. widcomm has the drivers for my device (i.e. it is recognised and loads properly) but I cannot use it.

it is as far as I can see a question of patching in the files to an earler, unlocked version of widcomm that will power my device and allow me access to configure things in the appropriate panel, please help! tried the ususal patches but I cant get them to work.

this is the most annoying thing i have ever come across-- why they decided to restrict the software is beyond me.

if anyone knows of widdcomm software specific for the ISSC dongle please help,. or software that should work, i dont want to have to buy a new dongle only to find that it has the same issue!

    Sorry, I think your ISSC dongle software doesn't support DUNP.  You would need to get a compliant Bluetooth dongle and use Widcomm 4.x in order to get proper DUNP.  The reason for the software restriction is that the Bluetooth SIG has not made concerted enforcement policies so most companies are lax in their profile implementation in their software.
