okay i'll try to keep it short and sweet.

i need a remote control program so that i can control windows media player (although i would be open to a new media player if absolutely necessary) via bluetooth on my treo 650. the reason i am having issues with other remote programs is because i need to be able to play videos, not just music.

will salling let me open video files through windows media player?

also, i cannot connect my phone to my computer. i am able to achieve a (bluetooth) connection between my phone and computer using other remote programs, but not with salling, is there a common problem with newbies on this?

Hi,

If you cannot connect, I'd be prone to think your PC has a Bluetooth stack with which we're not at this time compatible.

Salling Clicker supports the Microsoft and Widcomm/Broadcom stacks.

Could you please check the device manager to see what stack you have (unless you already know, of course)?

Best.

No problem. Do this:

1. Start Menu -> Run : enter "devmgmt.msc" and click OK.

2. In the device manager window that opens, look for "Bluetooth".

3. Right-click, in turn, the Bluetooth items you find and select "Properties"; the "Driver" tab will tell you the manufacturer of each of these components.

Best.

That is good news! Now, could you please check the About tab in Salling Clicker?

Yes, I wanted to verify that you saw "Microsoft" in the About tab. I presume you did.

Now that I know you have a working Bluetooth stack, I'd like to know how you cannot establish a connection. You know, error messages and such.

Sorry, I should have asked you about the nature of the problem before I took you down the path of figuring out what stack you had (which seems to be the most common problem, actually).
