Tips & Tricks|WMDC / Toshiba BT Stack Workaround

I decided to install the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack on my MSI Wind U123H and surprise surprise it broke Windows Mobile Device Center Bluetooth Syncing. I decided to try a 2 year old fix I did on my then UMPC (SONY VAIO UX280P) running Vista HP and it works on Windows 7.

On the PC.

  1. Open WMDC > Mobile Device Settings > Connection Settings
  2. Make sure Bluetooth is selected under Allow connections to one of the following
  3. Close them windows
  4. Hit Start (Orb) + R (Run command) type in regedit then hit enter
  5. Navigate to the ff: key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows CE Services
  6. look for SerialPort and modify it to COM7
  7. Exit the Registry Editor and Reboot your PC
  8. Connect as you would :D

stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
