Hi,
Version: driver_bluetooth_TC00131900C - 6.40.00(T)
Are already known the incompatbilities of Toshiba BT Stack with W7; but, in this case everything is working by the book (and it was the only one that installed properly).


Sorry for being offtopic.
Cheers.

It works (I installed it with Model.txt trick). I'm using it and it was the only one that worked (for me, at least).

Cheers.

No reason why it would be any different in Windows 7. Are you doing it exactly how the instructions say. Also are you putting in the correct model....

I have a 390N and changed the text to 280p like it says and it still doesn't work.

I followed it exactly.

You have to use: VGN-UX490N within model.txt in order to get it working.
Also, another mention: I used the application modelGen.exe from Sull and this is the way I' done it:
1. extracted the Model.txt and modelGen.exe files to Win root;
2. opened the modelGen.exe, typed: VGN-UX490N and set it to 10ms to regenerate file - I left the app OPEN and minimized int the taskbar;
3. opened BT Stack setup as Administrator (and set the file before to run in Vista SP 2 compatibility mode);
4. rebooted.

Cheers.

That worked setting it to 490N. It says to set it as 280p in the beginning of the thread. Someone should change that.

Hi,
Glad to hear that worked. Please, don't take the explanation literally; it's purpose is to give you a clue on how to manage an install and that is the secret and the real help :). I also needed clues and finally I understood (hence, I'm not a MS fan, but a MAC one).
So, let me give you 2 examples on how you should think:
1. you want an application on an UX380N that was made for UX180P (let's say, Win XP); you open the model.txt and type inside VGN-UX180P; the job will be done successfully;
2. you want an application on an UX380N that was made for UX280P (let's say Vista SP2); you open the model.txt and type inside VGN-UX280P; the job will be done successfully;
3. and so on ... depending on what model you have and what kind of driver / application you need to install.
This is the way I managed to bring my 380N to a fully featured Windows7 machine.

L.E: the most important: set the file before to run in compatibility mode (example: if it's one from XP, set it to run in XP mode). Just for the record: I was playing around and tested if the SmartWI Connection Utility from XP will install and run within W7 UX380N. Well, it worked by the book ...

Hope this helps.
Cheers.
