    I view the devices and printers on Windows 7 after connecting the Joy-Cons and they are greyed out, and the lights stop blinking. Pls help, also, it happens with the opposite Joy-Con as well. Here is a pic from devices and printers. http://imgur.com/PnrhXki

    Seems nobody is interested in helping you. I guess you are the only one interested in sing JoyCON on a PC.

    It work well on linux
    I don't use windows
    but yeah it is picky with bluetooth controler
    but generally the controller stop trying to sync before windows ended syncing so try spamming a button on your controler while syncing

    I'm on linux but i don't have a dualboot i use KVM + Quemu
    basically i have Linux and windows running at the same time side by side but i give the gpu to windows
    so i get about 98% native performance on gamming on windows

    So in brief what's the end product :

    A full linux system and with just a key combinason that i choosed i instantly switch to windows without having to reboot so all my work on linux don't moove it is as running both os side by side
    and what performance do i get ?
    well by running games on the windows vm (that take about 3 second to boot and do it on the background after my computer ended booting)
    I get about 98% of native performance which is peanut so yeah i can for example code on linux then in less than an half second switch to gta 5 on windows on linux on the same pc or photoshop to make textures if i'm devloping a game
    Basically it is way superior than dual boot or wine
    but you need a computer with enough ram and two gpu
    (i use the cpu built in gpu aka igp for linux) and my gtx 670 for windows

    Before doing anything read the doc to first be sure that your hardware is compatible ^^
