Is there such a thing as a MS XP BlueTooth DDK?

    We have 2.4 Ghz hardware and we are trying to expand it to Bluetooth. I saw a nice PowerPoint
    presentation
    about BT and Longhorn and there are SDK examples of how to write BT apps. Is there any DDK to show
    how to
    hook to or write my own HCI ? I'm looking for driver info.
    Thanks

  2. the bth miniport spec is not public. what type of device are you trying to
    write a bth driver for? usb? pci?

    We have a PCI / Card Bus / mini PCI device that does 802.11 connectivity.
    We want to expand our device capability.

  4. you should do it in a spec compliant manner (whichever appendix H (i think
    that is it) transport applies, probably serial or the newer H.5)

    Appendix H of what? I am not familiar. Does this mean with no public miniport
    spec that we have to write or buy an HCI? Does MS really want people to
    do this? Or does MS only want to support a few chosen hardware vendors?
    We probably won't resolve anything here. The suits from our customers
    probably need to talk to your suits.
    Thanks

  6. appendix H of the bluetooth specification. MS wants people to conform to
    the published and standardized HCIs that the BTH SIG has published.

    Doron:
    OK, thanks for the reply and info. I guess we are going shopping for an HCI
    to connect to our radio.
    Thanks
