    I have an older, non-aluminum/aluminium keyboard that I would like to pair with a Windows computer. I can find the keyboard just fine when it is discoverable, and it isn't connected to another computer. However, whenever I try to pair, it does not give me a passcode, and eventually says that it can't connect, you may try again... If I type in a random sequence of numbers, and hit enter, it immediately tells me that pairing has failed.

    Anyway, is there a helper app that can pair Apple keyboards with Windows computers?

    0000 is the default; try that before giving up.

    No dice. Choosing to either input 0000 on the Windows computer or have the Windows computer generate a number immediately results in a connection failed screen.
