Post Using Bluetooth under Win NT
I have a PC that runs under Windows NT and i'd like to use RobotC with Bluetooth on it . For now, I installed evaluation version on it and it runs with USB link to NXT (my official license is installed on my Win XP PC).
The USB key provided with NXT is not automatically recognized by NT so I installed BlueSoleil. Bluetooth seems to work, but RobotC can't connect to NXT.
Is this normal? There is a way to use RobotC/Bluetooth/NXT ?

NXT+Bluetooth is only supported on Windows XP SP2 machines... you wouldn't be able to install the NXT drivers without XP SP2 installed IIRC.

This being said... ROBOTC for Mindstorms with use of the NXT is only officially supported on systems with Windows XP SP2 or higher installed (Including VISTA) because that is the LEGO required Minimum Specs for using the NXT.

If you know a way around this requirement, then feel free to continue to try, but I unfortunately can't provide any help or support on the issue.

Oh! bad news. But that's what I thought (and was afraid) before posting.
I'll have to use another PC (the NXT one is my professional :cry: )
By the way, thank you for your quickly response
