    Bluetooth: Issue connecting Wii Controller (Wiimote)

    I have recently installed an Ekobuy Bluetooth v4.0 USB dongle, and installed the latest CSR Harmony drivers.

    All appears to work fine, but I am having an issue in connecting my Wii Controller to my PC. The Bluetooth software is discovering it fine, but when I try to add the device, it asks for a pairing code.

    According to all information I can find, the Wiimote it relatively unique in the fact that it has no pairing code. Every webpage I can find tells me to "click next" or "click skip", but I don't seem to have that option.

    I'm not sure how to proceed - I know I had it working a few years ago, on a different PC, in Windows 2000, but I am now stuck at this screen:

    As you can see the 'Next' button is grayed out, and cannot be clicked unless there is some input in the pairing code box. This is hugely frustrating, because everything is working, it's just a 'design flaw' preventing me from connecting my Wiimote.

    I thought I'd drop this on the forums here, to see if anyone has any insight or suggestions on how I can get this working - I know there are some very clever and experienced people here...

    The typical Bluetooth default/generic pairing code is 0:0:0:0 entered without colons (0000). Try that first. If that doesn't work, check out this article: Wii Remote Plus (RVL-CNT-01-TR) Connection Guide - Dolphin Emulator Wiki. There's an encouraging post about using the Toshiba Bluetooth stack on the exchange: Smoothboard Air Wii Remote Plus (Nintendo RVL-CNT-01-TR) Connection Issue. If that doesn't help, here's a depressing snippet from Yahoo "If whatever you are trying to connnect to requires a code, then you will be unable to pair with that device."
    Hope you can get it sorted. My sympathies!
