    Hi, newbie but an old techie here. I got my UNI MBP running Win7 32bit very nicely apart from the Bluetooth drivers which worked perfectly after setup until I installed the beta Snow Leopard bootcamp drivers. That fixed everything else in particular KbdMgr.exe and the trackpad but left me bluetoothless :(

    I don't want to system restore just to get the bluetooth back but could someone who's using the working generic MS drivers please tell me the driver details (names, dates, versions) for the Generic Bluetooth Adapter and the Bluetooth Enumerator. Then I can download them from the Windows Catalog and install them back.

    Muchas gracias in advance..

    Usually if you update drivers you can revert back to the old ones.

    Does this help?

    You may have to roll back more than one for bluetooth.

    It didn't give me the option to do that sadly. However after I removed the bluetooth entry and the usb hub in Device Manager and forcing the bluetooth icon to show in the notification area it bizarrely managed to fix itself. I got a severe lockup during a video chat using Skype beta which needed a hard power off and after restart it installed the generic drivers and I got my wireless keyboard and mouse working shortly after!
