Windows 7: Sideshow missing from 7048?

12 Mar 2009   #11

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

I didn't have to do anything. It all set up as part of the install. I noticed that with my pen tablet, it was useable as a pointing device, but the tablet PC functionality was missing. I installed the software for it and all the tablet PC functionality showed up automatically. Once 7 recognized the device it set up all the associated functionality. This is why I wondered if they had devices or if they're devices where being recognized. Maybe some services that where on by default in Vista and early versions of 7 'just in case' are not being turned on in 7 unless there is a known device to use the service. Just a guess.

I believe it only comes up when a compatible device is plugged in. Meaning it's still there, they've just taken it out of the control panel.

He's referring to sideshow, not the slideshow gadget.

Thank you for your answer...

How can I connect my Windows Mobile Phone (I have installed Windows SideShow Mobile on it) to Windows 7 so that Windows SS shows up in the control panel...???

I've already paired my device over Bluetooth with the PC, and tried to press connect in windows sideshow on my device... but I only get an error message:
"Make sure the device is paired with the PC over Bluetooth and that the PC is turned on and within range. If this problem persists, wait a few minutes and try again."

OK... Just found out, that you are right...
Symbol appears only if you already connected your device with Windows 7 (In my case this wasn't possible, because of any reason, there wasn't installed the SideShow Universal Driver ( or similiar to ... )
I installed it manually and then the connection worked...

Thank you for Support...
