So I have an HM10 (Bluetooth module) that is connected to my arduino. I have verified the connection with my phone by connecting to it and reading some packets so I am certain the connection to the arduino is solid. I have a usb Bluetooth module that is connected to my computer that has Windows 10 on it. I went into the settings on Windows, found the HM10, and connected to it no problem. It shows up as "connected" under my devices. So the last part of the setup is to make the HM10 show up as a COM port. I have followed the instructions that many sites say:
- Open Bluetooth Devices. Note From the Windows desktop, navigate: Start > (Settings) > Control Panel > (Network and Internet) > Bluetooth Devices. Note If using Windows 8/10, navigate: Right-click Start > Control Panel > In the search box, enter "Bluetooth" then select Change Bluetooth settings.
- From the COM Ports tab, click Add.
- Ensure that "Incoming (device initiates the connection)" is selected then click OK.
- Click OK.
See how it is shown as connected in the bluetooth window:
Also see how it does show up in device manager:
The problem that I have is even though my HM10 shows up in the valid Bluetooth devices under device manager, it does not show up in the list after I click "Incoming". The list is simply blank. Is there something I am missing to make it show up in this list?
Does not show up in this list!
