Using the Wiimote on Vista Answered

I've been trying for a while now to link a wiimote to my pc as a mouse/game controller/ect. I have been using bluesolei for bluetooth to link them up. I have only so far managed to get the computer to recognize the wiimote with bluesolei. I have bluesolei running and I'm holding down on the 1 & 2 buttons. Then I opened up one of the test scripts in GlovePie and my computer crashed instantly. I had to do a force reboot to get it back to normal. I tried using the GlovePie program several times, each one resulting the same as the first. I'm not sure if it is because I have Windows Vista, or I screwed up somewhere.
