Most of the problems are with 64 bit windows 7 with which some of Bluetooth dongles are not working properly.

After installing the hotfix, a popup appears with “this hotfix does not apply to your computer”

A have tried more USB Bluetooth devices (CBT2Nano, Mycom USB dongle) to be installed on my computer under windows 7 x64.
Installation of drivers is succesfull but the devices don,t response on bluetooth device searches.
During searching no bluetooth devices were found

Also after reboot of windows 7 x64 the driver has to be installed again.

The suggested bluetooth (widcomm) device drivers for windows 7 64bit are not sufficient to let my usb bluetooth device work
