And reading a bit more, I figured I would play around some more to get the old bluetooth dongle to work. I followed on help site, but Windows kept trying to install many “Bluetooth Peripheral Devices”.. over and over.
So, instead of trying to find hardware specific driver, I found a ‘generic’ Bluetooth driver. I shrugged and figured what the hell.
I unplugged the bluetooth device, uninstalled the WIDCOM and Broadcom drivers. Rebooted. Plugged the device back in. Picked Generic Bluetooth Adapter, and voila, both it and the Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator loaded without a hitch. Paired my phone with it, and was able to send and receive.
