How do I "repair" the Microsoft Bluetooth stack? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I made the "mistake" of installing Bluesoliel's bluetooth stack in order to see if my Logitech bluetooth dongle was compatible.

    Now, after uninstalling Bluesoliel's stack, I no longer have the following files:
    • BthPort.sys
    • BthEnum.sys
    • BthUsb.sys
    How do I "repair" these files so that I can use bluetooth at all?  Note that the files aren't present in the en-us sub-directory of drivers (with an MUI extension).


    Any help is appreciated.  I could very well have a vast misunderstanding of the Microsoft bluetooth stack in Vista.


    Thanks,

    Matt

  • Hi Matt,

     

    Thank you for your post.

     

    Based on my research, I would like to suggest the following:

     

    1.    Please run SFC to repair the files.

     

    Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

     

    sfc /scannow

     

    The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

     

    For more information about the command “SFC”, please refer to the following Knowledge Base:

     

    How to repair the operating system and how to restore the operating system configuration to an earlier point in time in Windows Vista

    2.    You can try the Hotfix of the following Knowledge Base:

     

    A Code 9 error is generated in the "Device status" box for Bluetooth Enumerator on a Windows Vista-based computer that has a USB Bluetooth radio device installed

    Hope this helps. Thanks.

  • I've got the flipside problem. All the Microsoft BT files are untouched, but some of the Microsoft

    BT registry entries were taken out in the process of removing a 3rd party BT stack which left some
    stuff in the registry. I got a little carried away and notice those entries are not there anymore.

    I cannot tell you which ones they are, all I know is that they are no longer in the registry.

    In my case, I have Windows XP Pro SP3.

    How do I reinstall the Microsoft BT stack to restore the registry entries under XP Pro SP3?

    Thanks!
