    Hi guys,

    I have not been able to get bluetooth to work. I use:

    Retina macbook 15 inch 2012
    Windows 8 in bootcamp

    I have tried this solution three without any luck. So I trying to ask here aswell.

    This link i used for the missing driver: http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P9X79 PRO&p=1&s=42&os=30& hashedid=ITjeO1wq0nRUPfej
    Only installed bluetooth suite in the win8 folder.

    Now in settings>change pc settings> wireless a bluetooth slider appears, but not selectable. Thanks in advance

    Just run the boot camp assistant on OS X and download the windows support software - install these drivers on w8. I had no problem with my bluetooth on w8 on a rMBP.

    I tried it, but the bluetooth device does not pop up in device manager, also nog bluetooth config in control panel. Also in settings bluetooth is greyed out.

    When did you d/l your windows drivers? My w8 install is as of 3 weeks ago and no BT works fine.

    I downloaded the windowssupport files from the boot camp assistant two days ago. So pretty recent. The other driver in the other link I downloaded yesterday.
