Acer aspire 3690 bluetooth driver

Hi I have just bought a bluetooth dongle. I downloaded the driver for vista which is what my laptop is running on, but it comes up with a message saying "this installer be run on windows vista only" Yes in those words! Terrible English I know! Really don't understand. Hope you can help me.
Thanks in advance.

If the bluetooth dongle driver was on an included disc, make sure you opened or ran the disc/driver as the administrator instead of just opening in the normal manor. I've dealt with a few of the bluetooth dongles, but not many, so I'm going to say that if you keep getting the same message try either going to the manufacturer's web site to see if there's a driver download there, or exchanging the device for a different one, it could be that the disc with the driver is bad. Also, because I'm not overly familiar with these devices, I recommend you try asking Ekse if my suggestions do not work. Ekse is another of our experts here, he's extremely knowledgeable, and he may be more familiar with the devices than I am. You can find Ekse under find experts on the home page.

Where i could download a bluetooth for PC? just wondering if i can download it for PC... i need your answer ASAP plsss help me.


a bluetooth dongle can be bought from stores, the software usually comes with the dongle. If you are using Windows 7, or vista, It has inbuilt bluetooth software. Just go into the start menu and search for bluetooth, the software should be diplayed.

I'm afraid there's nothing you can do about the replacement dongle. Have you taken your software and dongle into your dealer and had them try installing it on their computer? Or if you have a laptop, take yours in and see if they can help you. It may just be a matter of downloading new dongle drivers. Do a Google search for 3D Dongle drivers - I think Aladdin has the drivers you need. Also you will need to be running XP or Vista 32-bit on your computer for 3D software to work.

Relating to bluetooth


If I got it correctly you have a built in wireless bluetooth adapter but you did not get the software and possibly the driver either when you bought the laptop. If it is a a built-in bluetooth adapter then you need to look for your laptop manufacturer's site and find you laptop in the downloads section and you can download their own software and driver from the Vista section.

If you are using an outside dongle then almost for sure you'll be able to use BlueSoleil, though if you could not get the dongle recognized then you still need to find drivers to it. You can most likely download the Vista driver from the manufacturer's site.

If you name the manufacturer /of the laptop or the dongle/ I'll help find the driver or software for you.

What is the make and model of your dongle? Vista does not have drivers for all hardware but usually there are workarounds.

It is possible that the adaptor is not compatible with your version of windows vista, despite what the system requirements for the device say.
