    Just got a new Fujitsu T2010 Tablet with Vista Business. All Fujitsu Tablets
    are using the Toshiba BT stack that I'm not that happy with (doesn't
    integrate well in Vista). I removed the Toshiba stack and was hoping that the
    system would detect the BT and install the MS stack. It didn't recognize the
    BT so I had to manually install a driver. Not knowing what BT chipset Fujitsu
    are using I had to go through some trial and error. The result was that most
    BT radio drivers give some functionality (file transfer, query other device
    about available profiles), but for some reason I can't get PAN to work and
    I'm not sure I get the BT 2.0 EDR features. I need the PAN to be able to use
    my phone (HTC TyTn,WM6) as a modem.

    Would appreciate any help or comments on the Toshiba BT to MS BT stack
    process and also the PAN and BT 2.0 EDR functionality.

    Best Regards

    Bluetooth Stack Installation Guide

    This document guides users to install or upgrade the Bluetooth Stack on
    Windows Vista. Note: "Bluetooth Stack" is a name commonly
    used to describe the driver and apps used to control Bluetooth devices.

    Before updating the Bluetooth Stack, please make sure that either "Bluetooth
    Stack for Windows by Toshiba" or "Microsoft Windows Vista Stack" is not
    running
    on your machine.

    If you are using Bluetooth Devices (BT Mouse or keyboard, for example) be
    advised that they will not be available while you are upgrading or switching
    Bluetooth Stacks.

    CONTENTS:
    CASE 1 - How to install the newest Toshiba Bluetooth Stack.
    CASE 2 - How to prepare your machine to use the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack.

    Notes
    To use Microsoft Windows Vista Stack, Bluetooth Monitor 3 is required to turn
    on/off the power of Bluetooth module. This application is not required if
    "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba" is used.

    Re-installing the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack may result in "unsigned file"
    messages. Click "Install this driver software anyway" when non-logo'd
    drivers are found.


    CASE 1
    Use "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba"

    [Upgrade to latest Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba]
    1. Download the latest install program of "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by
    Toshiba" from the Toshiba WEB site.
    2. Open “Programs and Features†under Control Panel and uninstall "Bluetooth
    Stack
    for Windows by Toshiba", which is currently installed, and then reboot the PC.
    3. Click the downloaded executable (.exe file) to install the new Bluetooth
    Stack, then reboot the PC (The.exe file will require reboot before and/or
    after the installation).

    [Microsoft Windows Vista Stack -> Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba]
    1. Download the latest install program of "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by
    Toshiba" from the Toshiba WEB site.
    2. Open “Programs and Features†under Control Panel and uninstall Bluetooth
    Monitor.
    3. Click the downloaded executable (.exe file) to install the new Bluetooth
    Stack,
    and then reboot the PC.

    CASE 2
    Use "Microsoft Windows Vista Stack"

    [Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba -> Microsoft Windows Vista Stack]
    1. Download the install program of "Bluetooth Monitor for MS Stack†from the
    Toshiba WEB site.
    2. Open the Add/Remove Program under Control Panel and uninstall "Bluetooth
    Stack
    for Windows by Toshiba", which is currently installed, then reboot your PC.
    3. Run (Double Click) the downloaded "Bluetooth Monitor for MS Stack"
    executable.
    This will put this readme (Bluetooth Stack Installation Guide.txt) on the
    desktop and
    the setup program in the folder c:\Toshiba\BTMonitor.
    4. Run BtMon3Inst.exe located in the folder c:\toshiba\BTmonitor\ to install
    the Bluetooth
    Monitor for MS Stack. Once installation is complete, restart the system to
    complete all changes to the system.
