Bluethooth drivers for 9530 and Vista Ultimate?

When I try to pair my Storm to my Vista win machine I get an error message asking for the Bluetooth driver for the phone.

 

I have tried the install disk that came with the phone but it was not found there.  I have not found it on the RIM site ether

 

Any suggestions out there??

Re: Bluethooth drivers for 9530 and Vista Ultimate?

Hey Dunc, I get this error message too, but have simply chosen to ignore it and chosen not to let Vista attempt to install the driver.  Once I've closed off all the messages, I have no problems connecting via Bluetooth.  Note that you can't install applications and the such via Bluetooth, but you can sync and backup and restore via Bluetooth.  I wouldn't recommend transferring large files via Bluetooth as this is slow.

 

Let me know if that doesn't work for some reason.

Re: Bluethooth drivers for 9530 and Vista Ultimate?

I hooked mine up last night to Vista Home Premium... same pop-ups asking for drivers.  Just click the "Don't ask me again" option.  The pop-ups will stop and it should connect to the PC just fine.  I echo what Krypto said about transferring large files... it is sooooo slow via Bluetooth.  I honestly don't see the benefit of connecting to a PC via Bluetooth versus USB.  Unless the USB cable has been misplaced.  I guess it is kinda cool, though, that I can play the music on my Storm through the speakers on my PC.
