After installing the bluetooth driver on my window 7, i was unable to open the setting for the bluetooth device, no screen pop out?

I try 2 different version of driver, and the result was the same, any hint?

I have the same problem

Bought a Belkin bluetooth dongle which uses the Broadcom driver and I can't do anything with it. As mentioned above, I can't access the bluetooth settings, with both the manager that comes in the CD and the most recent version I've downloaded from the Broadcom website.

I really need to get this working I've tried the dongle in two different installations of Windows 7, with the same results
