JSI Tip 8886. The Bluetooth File Transfer Wizard is missing from the Accessories menu in Windows XP SP2?

When you use Start / All Programs / Accessories on a computer that has a Bluetooth device, the Bluetooth File Transfer Wizard is missing.

This behavior will occur if you have a Bluetooth device and software installed on your computer and you upgrade Windows XP to Service Pack 2, because the OEM files are NOT overwritten.

To update the Bluetooth device driver:

1. Start / Run / Devmgmt.msc / OK.

2. Right-click your Bluetooth device and press Properties.

3. Select the Driver tab.

4. Press Update Driver.

5. Follow the on-screen instructions.

NOTE: If you have not yet updated to SP2, use the /o command-line switch to overwrite OEM files.
