Bluetooth Peripheral Device driver failure in Windows Vista and Windows 7 (solved)

November 30

I had problems setting up Bluetooth HotSync.  Following the directions for pairing the device resulted in a "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" missing driver in Device Manager.  I finally figured out how to setup HotSync and am able to sync over Bluetooth to Windows 7 64-bit.
On the PC
Right-click on the Bluetooth icon and select Show Bluetooth Devices
Delete the Palm Phone
Right-click on the Bluetooth icon again and select Bluetooth settings
Turn Discovery on for the PC
On the Palm Device
Select Bluetooth
Turn Bluetooth On
Set Visibility to Hidden (if desired)
Select Setup Devices on the Bluetooth screen
Select HotSync Setup
Click Next
Select your PC
This is the important part:  Click Next 3 times (don't do what the screens tell you -- just click Next, Next, Next)
Click Launch HotSync
On the PC
Right-click on the Bluetooth icon again and select Bluetooth settings
Turn Discovery off for the PC (if desired)

I am having the same problem with a new RocketFish Bluetooth adapter.  I did NOT have this problem when I was using a Kensington USB Bluetooth adapter.  One big difference that I notice between the two adapters is that the Kensington adapter came with an updated version of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack software which contained its own DUN drivers.  However, the new RocketFish Bluetooth 2.0 EDR USB adapter does not seem to work with the Toshibal BT Stack.
Maybe this helps.  Maybe it doesn't.  Either way, I don't care.  It's how I roll.  I'm a smart ass.
I will check back for any additions to this thread.  I hope we can figure it out!  I will also post more Prose of Indifference.
