Bluetooth install error 183
Hi, I have an nlited version of xp on my eee Pc that I'm using for first my carputer project. I have a generic bluetooth dongle that I bought awhile back that I have been trying to install but without luck. Using the cd that came with the dongle I keep on getting errors on install - error code 183. To troubleshoot, I installed the drivers on a my laptop which has full xp and everyhthing worked no problem. I had a more up to date version of bluesoleil and I got the bluetooth install to complete but it doesn't seem to be operating correctly. It will communicate with my Holux m-1000 gps but when I check to see if any gps info is being communicated - nothing (i'm using a program that came with the gps to see if it's picking up co-ordinates). Along with some other tests I did I have come to the conclusion that I don't have the proper drivers and for the drivers to install from that orginal cd I'm missing some xp dependencies that it needs. I have googled and searched here also for a solution but can't really find anything. I'm thinking if I could find out what dependencies are needed I could just install them and go from there. Has someone come across this problem before or could give me some insight?
bluesoleil problems extend to windows 7
I came across this cos I've just bought a bluetooth dongle for my brand new Windows 7 machine, and when I tried to install the software I got the same darn 183 error and told to "try again"...but trying, again, and again, availed me nothing!
I'm wondering if there is some way to FIX this on a windows 7 machine, and if anyone has any suggestions can you please treat me like a complete idiot and make the steps as clear, and easy-to-follow (read as impossible to mess up) as you can?
I really don't know much about computers, so please don't assume ANY knowledge level! lol
