Connect your WiiMote to Windows XP using the BlueSoleil bluetooth stack

 

All right I received even more mail saying "my bluetooth software doesn't look like yours" (see this article or this article)... As said before that is possible because there are several bluetooth packages around. Iin this article I'll try to explain how you can connect your WiiRemote to Windows XP while using the BlueSoleil bluetooth stack.

Prerequisites (what you need to get it working):

  • Hardware
    • Computer
    • Bluetooth adapter (an adapter for using an open wireless protocol for exchanging data over short distances).
    • Wii Remote (also known as a wiimote, the primary controller for Nintendo's Wii console)
  • Software

 

Open BlueSoleil

Now press 1+2 on your WiiMote so all four of the lights blink. While the lights are blinking on your WiiReMote click on the orange sphere in the BlueSoleil program to find the WiiMote.

The New Hardware Wizard will automatically install drivers for the WiiMote.

You might get asked to Continue or Stop the installation. Click "Continue Anyway".

If all went well you'll see a green dotted line attached from the orange sphere to your WiiMote.
