Problem installing driver for bluetooth dongle

Hello all. I am trying to connect my mobile phone to my computer by blue tooth rather than a data cable.
I purhased a Bluetooth Usb dongle and cd from a company called Energy Sistem. This loads and runs and gives me two options. The first is to install the driver, the second is to install a programme called CA Magic mobile.
The programme I can install, the driver I cant.I believe that this is the Toshiba Blue tooth Stack. When I try to install it the install wiz\ard starts the almost instantly I get the wizard screen that says at the top "Blue tooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba- Install wizard". It then says "Install wizard completed" . Followed by "The wizard was interupted before Blue tooth Stack for Winows-by Toshiba, could be completely installed. Your ststem has not been modified. To install this program at a later date, please run the installation again"

If I open the file and click directly on the set up folder, exactly the same thing happens. Untill I get this installed, the other program is useless and is dosent recognise the dongle. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

What is your Toshiba model? It might be have BT built-in? You might try unstall the Toshiba BT stack (in device manager or Add & Remove program in Control Panel) first.

Hi Punky, its not actually a Toshiba phone, its a samsung, but the dongle came with the software. Its not been installed so there is nothing to delete in Add and Remove programes. Likewise its not in device manager
Oh, I am talking about your computer where you plug the BT dongle in. What PC make/model? The Samsung phone should have the BT built-in, and are you trying to install BT dongle on computer?
Sorry if i didnt make it clear. The pc is an e machine and i need to install the software on to the computer so that then the computer will recognise the usb BT dongle. The phone is allready BT enabled so I should then be able to recognise the dongle on the phone and move photos etc from the computer to the phone and vice versa
It takes me a while to search your device:

If you use eMachine PC, and I wonder why there is Toshiba bluetooth stack appears during installation. It should happen only on Toshiba PC which has BT built-in. You might have Toshiba software installed in system. However, try couple ways below:

- Unplug BT and start install driver only, and then if you can finish installing drivers, then plug BT in system, see if system detects it and search for driver automatically?

- Plug BT in system see if windows auto-detect new device? If so, dont use option install automatically, select manual install and navigate to CD driver and install from there.
