sorry, I had missed your post due to the way the messages broke from screen to screen.
Yes, I have tried it, but I can't get it to install successfully –when I try, it tells me that "No Bluetooth device was detected. Please make sure that your Bluetooth device is plugged-in properly in order to continue installation."
Do you remember how your Bluetooth device was listed in device manager before installing this? I have one item listed under Bluetooth and 2 under Bluetooth radios…
Please be sure you got an Imac 27 mid 2010, drivers/hardwares changes so if you dont have this specific model seems to look somewhere else. Have you installed Windows ? Which version ? this is for a x64 arquitecture, have you already installed bootcamp on windows ? It seems some how this mantain drivers and with software gives complete functionality.
Good Luck !
Used option 3 for my macbook air mid 2010 with Apple Broadcom Built-in Bluetooth device ID:
minor correction - the suit is now in one EXE (64 and 32 bit)
just excute it and you get among other things the A2DP working.
1.- Shut down the (magic mouse) MM
2.- Unpair it from OSX and then from Win7.
3.- Do a Nvram reset:
4.- Repair the MM in OSX.
5.- Reboot on windows and it should appear automatically
I followed the instructions #3 to install the Acer utility for the Atheros Bluetooth device. I was able to connect to a bluetooth mouse (Logitech V470) and it was fully functional. I had an issue where the mouse would not automatically reconnect after I turned it off and back on (to save batteries) or after a reboot/shutdown/suspend. I have not used any other bluetooth mice, so I am not sure if this is a common fix or specific to this scenario.
I was able to fix the issue in the Microsoft bluetooth settings. This is accessible from the control panel, searching in the start menu, or by running this command:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL bthprops.cpl,,1
In the settings, simply select the option to "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer."
I hope this helps someone. There are a lot of discussions of failed reconnects online and very few answers.
I have similar problems in rMBP(2012) with Windows 8 Enterprise 64 and the newest bootcamp(4.0).
The magic mouse only works in left-right click, no scrolling.
- In device manager, apple broadcom built-in bluetooth shows yellow exclmation mark. The driver was unloaded.
- In windows system event log, there are BTHUSB error and alerts with error code 17 and 3.
- Hardware ID: VID_05AC&PID_8286.
- There is not bluetooth icon in the task bar.
The SSD has no MAC OSX partion with MBR mode.
I will try some suggestions.
