I have tried this fix on Windows 7. As soon as I click to install the RIM driver I get an error message that this may not be compatible with my hardware and that my computer may become unstable or stop working all together... any ideas?

I may not have got the direct fix for my problem here but this discussion served as a good reference. This is where I've got my bluetooth peripheral device driver for vista: http://www.driversdownloadhub.com/bluetooth-periph

The solution for Vista as described by pmdci also works for Windows 7 64-bit.
Once again, RIM stuns the sensibilities on how difficult it is to get their DM software to work on a computer. I cannot imagine how difficult if not impossible it would be to get RIM DM software to work if I were not so technically inclined. I feel sorry for the average non-technical person.
I had to follow pmdci's instructions to get DM 18.104.22.168 to work. I had the best of all possible situations for DM. A disaster caused the need to wipe my laptop clean and install Windows 7 from the DVD.
This is as clean as it gets. No pollution. No hack. No crack. No hook. No crook. No c**p. Just a clean install of Windows 7 fully patched with all Windows updates both recommended and optional. Download DM 6 from the RIM web site so you know you have latest and greatest.
Then install DM 6. You guessed it. Even under the best possible conditions RIM can't install DM 6 without the need for several hours of internet searching to find an answer about why the BB was not properly installed as a Bluetooth device.
It simply stuns the sensibilities how horrible RIM is with their software.
Thank you pmdci!
