    I have a 2009 MacPro 2.93 Ghz, (4.1) running Yosemite. According to the CAT charts, I should able to activate Continuity with either a Bluetooth 4 Dongle, or adding a new updated Airport card. When I run the tool, it halts at "Plug in a USB Bluetooth 4 dongle to add support, which I did, and tried 2 different IOGear dongles, both of which worked on my MBP to activate continuity... ) Does not seem to even see the dongle. This Machine was a CTO, and does not contain a built in Airport card. Safe to assume I need to install this too?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks very much... I'll give it a look. I actually purchased a "Airport Extreme Card 802.11n for Apple Mac Pro MB988Z/A" which is supposed to do the trick, then purchased the iogEAR DONGLE, FOR MY MBP thinking it may do the trick for the desktop as well, then once it did not do the job on the tower, that it must also require at least the older airport card be installed. Although the new card I bought supposedly will work in and of itself, was trying unsuccessfully to cut corners...
