Windows 7: Bluetooth: Windows 7 won't find devices.

Bluetooth: Windows 7 won't find devices.

Argh - The frustration! haha... seriously pissed off with trying to figure this out.

My first problem was that I didn't have a Bluetooth enabled PC, so I bought a dongle in hoping it would be as easy as 1,2,3. Unfortunately it's never the case with my luck.

So I plug the bluetooth USB receiver in and the drivers install correctly, but there's no bluetooth options on my Windows 7 PC. I eventually get the settings and Bluetooth stuff up and it appears like it knows there is a Bluetooth receiver and Devices & Printers picks it up fine.

The problem I am having is that my PC will not find any devices at all.

I have a Nexus 4 and a quick check allowed me to confirm that my PC is coming up as a Bluetooth device to join from other devices, but it instantly returns a message saying "cannot communicate with ARRON-PC"

Other information:

I know this device works as I had it running with Motionjoy to use a PS3 controller via the Bluetooth dongle and every button worked without delay and the controllers (I had 3 connected for tests) all connected fine.
