Desktop 6.0 Bluetooth Connectivity lost

After recently updating to Desktop 6.0 my software will no longer allow Bluetooth connectivity (which I had with the previous version)

 

Suggestions?

Do you get an error?  

Do you have the "Allow bluetooh connections" option checked under Toools-> Desktop Options -> Bluetooth?

Under the Bluetooth tab it will not allow me to accept connection as "Your computer does not have the necessary support for Bluetooth functionality"

 

But of course it did prior to installing this version

Re: Desktop 6.0 Bluetooth Connectivity lost

Hi,

 

I have the same problem with my Lenovo T61. Everything was fine in v5.0.1.

 

I've tried everything I can think of from diagnostics to disable bluetooth, reboot, renable and check DM6, reboot and checkl DB6 but nothing.

 

No choice now but to rollback and hope for the best.

 

Link the v5 downloads is here if you're interested;

Cheers,

Simon

Now fixed.

 

I added a Blauetooth serial port at COM10 and for some reason it now reads the port and recognizes the BB.

 

Maybe this was just coincidence - but there you are.

How did you do this?  I'm having the same issue.  How do you "add a bluetooth serial port at COM10?"  Thanks so much!

Did you enable 'Turn on Bluetooth Support' in Device connection under Device Manager properties?

Re: Desktop 6.0 Bluetooth Connectivity lost

this does not solve the issue, I can't select COM10 and with COM11 I get identical results: no connection!

I wonder if BB engineers are reading these messages as they could come up with a solution. Downgrading to version 5 is not possible either....
