Getting Nokia PC Suite to Work on a New Toshiba Notebook

Got a new Toshiba A200 notebook on Friday so just spent the weekend setting it all up. All went pretty well until I got to setting up my Nokia 6111 to sync with Outlook – a very handy feature you can do with Nokia’s PC Suite.

Except it didn’t work.

After much digging I found that Nokia’s software won’t work with Toshiba’s bluetooth stack in Windows Vista. It found the phone, but no amount of persuasion would make it pair with the computer. You need Microsoft’s bluetooth stack.

So here’s the fix:

  1. Go to your Control Panel in Windows and uninstall the existing Bluetooth by Toshiba.
  2. Reboot
  3. Go to C:TOSAPINSBluetooth-MonitorBtMon3Inst_v301.exe and install that.

This process has removed the Toshiba bluetooth stack and installed the Microsoft one.

Easy…!

    Thanks a lot for writing this on your blog! – I was having the same problem but didn’t have a clue about that it was possible to replace one bt stack for another.

    Great!
