    So, for the past little while I've been trying to connect my Wii remote (RVL-CNT-01-TR (the one with the built-in Wii Motion Plus)) to my laptop via Bluetooth. Main reason I want to do this is because I want to use the Nunchuck as a one-handed VR controller for streaming games to my Google Cardboard. Anyway, I've connected the wiimote to my laptop and the lights keep flashing, which means it's connected, but I can't get it to be recognized by GlovePIE (doesn't respond to input). Any possible way of making this work? None of the other forum posts anywhere on the internet have been very helpful. I even tried installing a Wiimote HID program but that didn't do much other than make the lights on the wiimote flash continuously as mentioned before.

    Honestly, getting my Wii remote to connect to my PC was an absolute pain in the ass. I ended up just getting a DolphinBar (by Mayflash), which solved all my problems for $14. I recommend you do the same

    Also I believe I know which HID program you're talking about, you should probably go back to the restore point from before you installed it because it broke my windows installation after a while

    Any way I could just uninstall the driver without rolling back? I have some pretty important recent stuff.
    Thanks for the help though! Although I found this little $10 controller on GearBest (probably won't order it, but it would be neat)
    I think I'll just mod the nunchuck with a USB cable.

    Is it the one that requires booting into safe mode to install it?? If it's not you're probably fine, otherwise if I were you I would put all the stuff that would get caught in the roll back onto an external drive and go through with it, just to be on the safe side

    Edit: That is, unless you can just uninstall it from the program management window. I never had the chance to try that, it may work for you
