Windows 7: Change Bluetooth Settings - bthprops.cpl

Change Bluetooth Settings - bthprops.cpl

Hello,

Our .Net application has a menu option to launch Bluetooth Settings (MSFT stack). The program uses "bthprops.cpl". This worked fine on XP.

Now when I run the program in Windows 7, it launches windows explorer with "Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and printers\" location.

Using the Control Panel -> search for "Bluetooth" and select "Change Bluetooth Settings" will display the bluetooth settings fine.

Can any one help me what short cut I should use to launch the Bluetooth Settings dialog directly?

I appreciate your help, Thanks in advance.

Why not try right click it and save to desktop as a shortcut?

Thanks for quick replay,
right click on the "Change Bluetooth settings" hyperlink doesn't display any action popup menu.
