Has anyone used these Bluetooth modules ??

I have been googleing for PC application code examples, but I have not 
found a good search term.

C# would be my source of choice, but MS C++ would also work.

Thanks for any informations.

I haven't used this particular bluetooth module but normally in Windows when you connect to a bluetooth device which uses the serial protocol you will just get additional serial ports (COM) which can be accessed using the standard Windows API's for serial communication. In .Net you have the SerialPort class in the System.IO.Ports namespace, with MS C++ you would have to use the CreateFile(), SetCommState() and other functions. With a bit of googleing you will find everything you need to know. Since your question isn't really about embedded you will probably get better answers in one of the Microsoft newsgroups.

Has anyone here use any Bluetooth device with M$ ? The problem with M$ newsgroups, they all want to do web things, not embedded things. I can not get my BT module to connect to my XP system and was hoping a real embedded programmer would understand my problem. thanks hamilton

It's probably nothing that can be solved here. BT is "fun" to set up. If the XP drivers are installed and working (have you tested the BT adapter with something else, say a phone?), maybe they don't support BTComm. Or maybe the module you're trying to talk to does not support it. Whatever the module, does it have an application note on getting it to talk to Windows?
