Hello,

If your WIndows 7 edition is Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate, you may want to try and install WIndows XP Comparability Mode.

If you have Windows XP install disk and a license key, then download and install VMware Fusion and install Windows XP into a virtual machine.

I looking for the drivers (bluetoothstack) for the macbook pro 2008 late model, I dont want to have to run a VM to connect, I am looking to connect natively to windows 7, have ultimate edition
Expert:  Jeff Micono replied 4 years ago.
Hello,

I understand. I thought the primary goal was to get the headset working with WIndows without constraint. I learn now that the solution needs to be constrained. Would you like me to opt out so another expert can help?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Thanks for the thought, but want I want to be able to do is use the headset for programs that have audio while running applications in my native OS.
Expert:  Jeff Micono replied 4 years ago.
Your grace and understanding is genuinely appreciated, and I hope is not lost on any other expert that attempts to offer you some assistance.

Have a nice day!

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
