Running penDirector on Windows Server 2008 R2

The problem is that Microsoft doesn't support Bluetooth devices since Windows Server 2008 R2; so the whole Bluetooth stack is missing. Your setup tries to open up the Bluetooth/Infrared management console, which fails. If the customer doesn't need Bluetooth support, this doesn't matter, as we fixed it by copying the needed management console from a Windows 7 (x64) installation to the Windows Server 2008 R2 installation.

The needed files are:

  • From Windows 7
    C:\Windows\System32\irprops.cpl
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\irprops.cpl
  • To Windows Server 2008 R2
    C:\Windows\System32\irprops.cpl
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\irprops.cpl
