Connect your WiiMote to Windows XP using the Microsoft bluetooth stack

 

All right I received a mail saying, my bluetooth software doesn't look like yours (see this article). That's possible because there are several bluetooth packages being used, in this article I'll try to explain how you can connect your WiiRemote to Windows XP while using the Microsoft 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
    • Windows XP

 

Connect WiiMote to Windows by accessing the control panel (Start / Control Panel) and select "Bluetooth Devices".

 If all went well your WiiRemote is now connected.

 

You can disconnect your WiiMote by either pressing the red button on your WiiMote or by right clicking your WiiMote-icon and select disconnect.
