There is a solution.
First, pair your iPhone 4 with your PC or Mac running Windows7 bootcamp. Right click on the bluetooth icon in the system tray, select "add device".
Go to your iPhone and go into the settings, then Bluetooth. The iPhone will automatically become discoverable.
If all goes well, then Win7 will detect it and try to install it. However, it will be missing some drivers and fail with at least one.
After Win7 barfs on the install, reboot the pc, then go into device manager. You should see "Unknown Bluetooth Device" with the yellow question mark.
RIght-click on it, then update driver, then manually choose, then choose from disk, then choose "Bluetooth radios", then choose from manufacturer.
Select "Microsoft" - NOT "Microsoft Corporation. Just "Microsoft"
There should be only one driver. Install it.
If all goes well, then Bob's yer uncle.
If not, then you'll need the driver. You can get it at:
Hope this cures what ails ya.
Thanks for your advise.
However, there are more than one driver under "Microsoft", like "Bluetooth MTP", "Bluetooth Printer", and "Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator". Which one should I choose?
Also, the hyperlink below provided in your last message is invalid.
I have solved the problem with the bluetooth issue. As the steps said before, the important matter is the option of "Microsoft" & "Microsoft Corporation". It should be chosen with "Microsoft Corporation" instead of "Microsoft" only. There is only one driver for installation. After installed, the bluetooth can be run in normal under Windows 7.
Hope that you can do it also.
I'm on Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate Super Ichiban Edition. Add Device found my iPhone 4, but I am not able to connect to it. So, trying the instructions above, I have multiple drivers. The two listings under "Manufacturer" are "Microsoft" and "MicrosoftHW".
Microsoft has the following options:
- Bluetooth MTP Device Enumerator
- Bluetooth MTP Responder Service (Null driver)
- Bluetooth Printing Support
- Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator
- Microsoft Transciever v 3.0 for Bluetooth
"MicrosoftHW" has the following:
- Microsoft Wireless Transciever for Bluetooth
- Microsoft Wireless Transciever for Bluetooth 2.0
- Microsoft Wireless Transciever for Bluetooth v3.0
My best guess is I should choose "Microsoft Transciever v 3.0 for Bluetooth" under "Microsoft" but would appreciate some guidance if any is available.
