How to install Broadcom/Widcomm bluetooth stack

It seems my "Logitech v470 cordless laser mouse for bluetooth" requires bluetooth stack from Broadcom/widcomm.

I downloaded the file from here:
http://www.broadcom.com/support/license.php?file=SetupBtwDownloadSE.exe

and installed it.

After I installed, when I checked my bluetooth stack, it is still showing as microsoft.
Here is the screenshot:

Dear pawan-agr,
 Try to manually disable the Microsoft Bluetooth Driver, restart the computer. Now try installing broadcom driver again.

If this issue is only related to the stack, it means if your Bluetooth mouse is working properly, just ignore this issue.

anjana,

My mouse is not working with the microsoft driver that's why I'm trying the broadcom driver. I'll let you know after I try your suggestion.

Hi Pawan,

AFAIK, the Widcomm stack *does not* (ACTUALLY) install on Windows 7, it only installs some additional support but internally still uses the MS stack for the basic Blue-tooth functionality.

My suggestion would be to download the Windows XP drivers from the widcomm site.

After downloading, follow this link -
http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/archive/index.php/t-342643.html 
in order to install those in Windows 7 (Which you seem to have in the screen shots).

The article in itself is very exhaustive about the whole blue-tooth trouble-shooting. You can refer to it & find if something solves your issue. My hunch is you will be OK once you get the XP drivers up and running.

Please let me know how it goes!

Thanks,

CK
