First, start up your BlueSoleil Software and activate your Bluetooth adapter if needed.

Then press the 1+2 buttons on your Wiimote simultaneously and click on the center of the orange circle. It will take a few seconds to find it. You need to make sure that the LEDs on the Wiimote are blinking the whole time, you can either press them the whole time or every couple seconds.

Note: If BlueSoleil does not detect your device on the first attempt, unplug your Bluetooth device (or shut it off) and plug it back in. Then press the center orange circle and try again.

When the Wiimote is recognized, it's name will be NINTENDO-RVT-CNT-01. When that shows up on the screen, press the 1+2 buttons again and then right click the Wiimote icon and choose Refresh Services .

You will now see that the Human Interface Device icon at the top of the window is in a box and highlighted yellow. Click that HID icon at this point. The Wiimote icon and Bluetooth HID button should now be highlighted green, and there should be a dotted green line going from the Wiimote icon to the center orange circle (this means it is connected).

You are done! You can now use your Wiimote with programs such as GlovePIE , WiinRemote , and Wiinstrument .

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and have fun with your Wiimotes!

It is also worth mentioning that the Wiimote can be used to play Wii games on PC through Wii emulator (called Dolphin).
