Has Anyone gotten wireless mighty mouse working on bootcamp vista?

It worked with XP, and I did a fresh install of Vista, and even with the 1.3 bootcamp, my mighty mouse will never be found on Vista.

Problem sovled!!!

Hi guys

I managed to find a solution to this problem. It was a case of turning your BT device off then on during install.

Here are the instructions:


Before you can use a Bluetooth wireless device with Windows on your Mac, you must pair the device with your computer while running Windows.

To pair a wireless Mighty Mouse or Apple keyboard with your Mac:
In Windows, open the Bluetooth Devices control panel.
In the Devices pane, click Add.
Follow the Bluetooth Device Wizard to set up your device.
To make your Apple wireless device discoverable, turn the device off and then on again.
In the passkey pane, select "Let me choose my own passkey" and enter a numeric code using the number keys along the top of the keyboard. (You can't use the numeric keypad to enter the passkey.) To pair a Wireless Mighty Mouse, enter four zeros ("0000"). To pair an Apple Wireless Keyboard, enter eight to sixteen digits.

Hope this helps

Steve

Thumbs up Re: Problem sovled!!!

Hi stephenheath30,

At last, you found the solution.
I have read also the review of your solution and I have never faced such type of problem in my laptop with the vista.
But i am happy to see that it helps other.
