Vista SP1 Testing

TIP: When testing on Vista SP1, be sure to install the WUR package update before running the WLK Bluetooth tests. If you do not have WUR, please contact Microsoft for details.

Setup Tips

TIP: When setting up the Bluetooth tests for WLK, consider the physical layout of your lab and testing environment. Setting up the radios so that they are within several feet of each other and have a clear line of sight of each other will reduce possible false failures. A relatively noise-free environment will also help reduce false failures of the Bluetooth tests.

Bluetooth SCO Test

TIP: Make sure that you have a second machine setup in DTM with a Bluetooth radio attached to act as the secondary machine in this test.

Troubleshooting common Bluetooth test issues

Issue: "Failures finding devices during Inquiry"

This failure can happen when testing in a noisy environment. Rerunning the test will usually fix this error. You can also try to bring the radios closer together, ensuring that they have a clear line of sight. Turn off other radios that may be causing interference.

Issue: "Failures connecting devices during inquiry tests or other"

This failure is due to the test timing out before the devices could be reconnected. Rerunning the test will usually fix this error.
