I have recently installed OS X 10.4.6 and also applied the Bluetooth firmware update, but I can not find the Bluetooth setup assistant in Utilites, and a search via Finder didn't locate it either.

And I could not find a copy of the software in the downloads at .Mac

Please advise how I can restore my setup assistant. Thanks, Colin

    The Bluetooth Setup Assistant is actually stored in 'System > Library > Core Services' but is accessed via the 'Bluetooth' Preference Pane in 'System Preferences'.

    Click the 'Devices' tab then 'Setup New Device'

    That's where it was. Thanks very much for you assistance.

    Weird one, this: I wanted to locate Bluetooth Setup Assistant to speed up the process of re-connecting my wireless mouse or keyboard when a connection is lost, as occasionally happens for whatever reason - my plan was to place an alias for it on the desktop and to add the assistant to the Dock, so that I could always open it straight away, whether it was the mouse or the keyboard that had lost a connection.

    As hard as I tried, though, I could not locate the assistant. Like the originator of this thread, I had already done the obvious thing of looking in Applications/Utilities/ but it wasn't there, and I then went to the Apple support pages to find out where it should be, only to find that that is exactly where the online advice says it is supposed to be! And I had already tried all the permutations I could think of to find this application in Find... and Spotlight, but found nothing. I eventually found the answer in this thread, so many thanks for that!

    Any explanations for all of this? It would have saved me a lot of time and aggravation if I had been able to find Bluetooth Setup Assistant in the usual ways, and if Apple's support page had only said it was in System/Library/CoreServices/ - very annoying! By the way, I do now have the assistant in the Dock and as an alias on the desktop, as intended, and it works a treat!
