    troubles with my Realtek WLAN/BlueTooth adapter

    Update: The wuhideshow tool works as advertised, thanks!
    I still have a strange issue. A number of pages back I was able to set turn on automatic device driver installation from Windows Update. First the option was greyed out but now it is set to "Yes":

    So far so good.

    According to "Check for updates" no updates are available, so I assume also no driver updates are available.

    However, when I run the wushowhide.diagcab tool, it reports many drivers are available:

    I am having troubles with my Realtek WLAN/BlueTooth adapter, so I would like to try a driver update.

    Anyone any idea how to install the drivers mentioned above? As Windows Update does not 'see' them.
    It looks like the installation of drivers is still blocked, although the "Device installation settings" are set to "Yes".
    (Could it have to do with the fact that under Device Installation Settings only "manufacturers' apps and custom icons" are mentioned, but no drivers?)

    I hope someone knows how to resolve this. Thanks!

    "Anyone any idea how to install the drivers mentioned above? As Windows Update does not 'see' them."
    It does not see them because that is your list of hidden updates. You can simply check the ones you want to go thru and the next Windows Update will see them but auto install, so be careful if you don't actually want them.

    "I am having troubles with my Realtek WLAN/BlueTooth adapter, so I would like to try a driver update."
    Best thing to do and not screw up the list of Hidden Updates you already have, is go to Device Manager (Win+X), expand Bluetooth to see installed drivers. Then r-click the driver/Update Driver Software/Search automatically ... If there is a newer one, it will auto install. Test, if not happy roll back by doing same steps except click Properties and use roll back option. Good Luck

    No, this is the list of available updates, according to wushowhide.diagcab. I can tick them in order to hide them, not to unhide them, really. All of them are unticked. But these driver updates are not available through 'normal' Windows Update, unfortunately.

    I tried that earlier, but no updates were available.
    Still, because the RTL8723BS is not working well, I hope theree is actually an update available, as the above list seems to say...
