Bluetooth Registry Entries
This section describes the class-of-device (CoD) registry subkeys and entries that apply to the Bluetooth driver stack.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEMs) can use the COD Major and COD Type values to indicate the Class of Device for a Bluetooth-enabled Windows device. After the Bluetooth class installer sets the Class of Device based on these registry values, a remote device can determine whether it is connecting to a portable computer, a desktop computer, a phone, and so on.
The registry path to the COD Major and COD Type values is:
Note that setting these values changes the Bluetooth Class of Device for the system, regardless of which Bluetooth radio may be attached. You can set the COD Major and COD Type to
DWORD values as defined for the Class of Device field values in the Bluetooth SIG Assigned Numbers.
The Bluetooth profile driver, BthPort.sys, reads the COD Major and COD Type values to determine how it should respond to a device inquiry. These values affect only the
COD_XXX_MINOR_XXX bits of the Class of Device. The
COD_SERVICE_XXX bits are not affected by this registry entry.
If the COD Major and COD Type values are not set or are set to invalid values, the Bluetooth class installer will set these values to
Profile drivers can specify scanning parameters settings for their device(s) in their profile driver's INF file to tailor to the specific needs of a given device scenario.
You can override the default system scanning parameters by providing one or more of the following scanning parameters listed below into the AddReg directive. More information on how to use this directive can be found on MSDN.
|Value Name||Type||Min Value||Max Value|
|HighDutyCycleScanWindow||DWORD 0x10001||0x0004||0x4000. Shall be equal or smaller than the HighDutyCycleScanInterval parameter|
|LowDutyCycleScanWindow||DWORD 0x10001||0x0004||0x4000. Shall be smaller than the LowDutyCycleScanInterval parameter|
|ConnectionIntervalMin||DWORD 0x10001||0x0006||0x0C80. Shall be smaller or equal to ConnectionIntervalMax|
