I'm trying get Rapoo Bluetooth headphones to work on Vista 64. They Bluetooth link OK, but Vista
can't find drivers. I contacted the Mfg, they say Vista should supply.....confused.

I checked, and noticed that I am still running SP1. Will installing SP2 help me out with Bluetooth support
or am I going in the wrong direction here??

Yes, install SP2. Let us know if it helps.

After installing, there will be lots of updates to install.

I upgraded to SP2. It did absolutely no good.

I did however finally get the drivers installed.

I used a different Bluetooth dongle.......the one that I had been using was a Version 3. I replaced it with
a Version 2.2, and the drivers loaded on first attempt.

I guess the Rapoo Headset only likes a Version 2 dongle???? I was not aware that bluetooth perhipheral devices
were version sensitive, but I'll be aware of that potential issue in the future.

Reading the description of that app, I don't know if you want it or not. I don't have a need for it.

There should be roughly 150 updates after installing SP2.

Even though I've got it working with the Version 2 dongle, I'm going to keep plugging away.

It seems as though the drivers should load to any Version of dongle, but then I don't understanding the relationship between the Bluetooth radio, Vista, and the drivers?
