Use Microsoft Bluetooth Stack on Toshiba M200

I was asked how to replace the default Toshiba stack installed on the M200 with the Windows stack (to allow for .NET programmability). Luckily it’s easy to do and Toshiba include the necessary bits on the hard disk.

First you need to uninstall the Toshiba stack – Go to Add/Remove programs and select “Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba”

Next run the C:TOSHIBAMS_BluetoothBtMon2Inst.exe installer to install the BT monitor.

Finally reboot the machine, the system will detect the radio and install the necessary drivers.
