Bluetooth Driver on Windows Server 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have Installed Windows Server 2008 32bit Standard Edition on My Notebook where i can get everything working fine (all my Notebook Applications) but only one thing doesn't works properl my Bluetooth Drivers.

    I can able to search and add bluetooth devices to my notebook but cannot able to communicate with those devices and i find the one of the device says as unknown and when i tried to search for the drivers it says cannot able to find it and gives a solution to install a windows vista update (KB940199).

    I downloaded the update and installed it but it says 'does not apply to your system' and now my bluetooth devices are not working.

    My Notebook configuration is
    ACER Ferrari 1004WTMI, 4gbRam, AMD Turion X2 Processor.

    I'm using the bluetooth mouse which communicates with my built in bluetooth dongle from BROADCOMM. but doesn't works

    i have installed the latest version of my bluetooth driver from ACER.

    Can anybody help me out to solve this ?

  • Hello,
    Bluetooth is not available for Windows Server 2008.  You would have to get the drivers and Bluetooth stack from ACER or from the Bluetooth devices that you are attempting to install.  The referenced message means that driver is not intended to be installed on Windows Server 2008
