Hi,

 

I have Windows 8 running on my Macbook Air using bootcamp. Everything is working fine but I bought this Microsoft Wedge mouse which is for Surface. I tried to connect with MBA and it works fine in Mac but in bootcamp-Windows 8, I tried many times, different drivers but its not working. Windows detects the mouse in bluetooth panel but could not pair it. Just message "That didn't work, make sure the device is still discoverable".

 

Anyone who can help in this...Thanks.


MacBook Air, Windows 8

    I have no experience with the wedge mouse but perhaps this might help.

     

    I have a Magic Trackpad which paired itself to my MacBook when I wanted it paired to my Windows Machine.

     

    I solved the the issue by unpairing it from the Mac.

     

    I next removed the batteries from the Trackpad.

     

    I restarted the Windows Machine running Windows 8.

     

    I reinstalled the batteries in the Trackpad and then I was able to pair the Trackpad to the Windows Machine easily.

     

    The Windows Machine is not a Mac and obviously isn't running under Bootcamp but it might be worth a try.

     

    Please advise us if you succeed in pairing it to Windows 8 after reinstalling the batteries.

    Thanks very much..I did the same process and now it did work .  I removed the mouse from Mac and then restarted in Windows and tried to pair and now working perfectly.

    Thanks that worked too!    I unpaired the wedge mouse on the OS X Mavericks side.   I removed the batteries.  I booted back into Windows 8.1, inserted the batteries, hit the bluetooth button on the button until it glows, and succesfully added it via Manage Bluetoothe Devices.

     

    Before the above, I had the same "That didn't work, make sure the device is still discoverable".

    I would just like to thank rtheb for posting this solution.

     

    I had the same issue with Microsoft Sculpt Touch Mouse (Mouse was detected but not able to pair, same error message) when upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 and this is the solution that worked for me.
