Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse Not Working With Vista Business

I just got the Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 for use with my Vaio laptop running Windows Vista Business. I have the latest bluetooth driver and the mouse connected fine in the bluetooth device manager. However...when I turn on the mouse, Vista can't find the driver even though it's a Microsoft-made mouse. The strange thing is, I have it running fine on another laptop (running vista Ultimate). Any ideas on this problem/how to fix it?

Don't leave it up to Vista to find the driver

Here is the driver page from the Microsoft Website, download th appropriate drivers for your OS

I went there and downloaded it already, it didn't help.

Sony Vaio does not have proper mouse drivers for this mouse, and Microsoft does not provide any.

In my case the following has helped http://support.microsoft.com/kb/952818/en-us  - press and hold the Connect button on the bottom of the mouse. If your device has a battery indication light, it will blink and alternate between red and green to indicate that the device is discoverable.
On the computer, open the Bluetooth software. The Bluetooth software is typically located in Control Panel. For more information about opening the Bluetooth software, see the "How to open the Bluetooth software" section.
Click the Devices tab, and then click Add.
Follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

If you are prompted for a passkey, select No passkey. Microsoft Bluetooth mouse devices do not require a passkey to connect to the computer.
