Serial Port Profile with no passkey in Vista
Posted on 2008-10-30
My goal is to connect my Bluetooth GPS BT-309 (Dell Bluetooth GPS) to my Laptop. The laptop does have a bluetooth adaptor, and is running Vista Home Basic. I have previously connect the GPS to my old laptop running under XP as well as my Windows mobile 2003se device.
The problem is that when I add a new device and the laptop sees my GPS, it allows me to connect without a passkey, but when I use an application to connect to the correct com port, then the balloon in the system tray comes up saying that a device is trying to connect and won't let me not use a passkey. I've tried using the passkey 12345 and 0000. My bluetooth GPS does not support passkeys.
I tried looking into the registry for any means of disabling the requirement for a passkey and found what looked like what might change it, but didn't achieve any success.
