How would I get some more info on the QT examples? Specifically the 3 C++ bluetooth examples.
Bluetooth file transfer
The examples compile and run on windows but there is no actual connection to the bluetooth adapter. It looks straight forward but doesn't seem to work.
So this must be why the examples won't work on widows:
*Currently, the API is supported on the following platforms: Android, iOS, Linux (BlueZ 4.x/5.x) and OS X. *
I found this here: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtbluetooth-index.html
So no bluetooth support for windows? So much for cross platform development.
Bluetooth on Windows has never been an easy thing (even for the end user)
Proper bluetooth support for Windows is looking like it will make it to Qt 5.7 (fingers crossed)
In the meantime you can use the native bluetooh API and methods on Windows. (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.devices.bluetooth.aspx)
@tekojo Thanks for the feedback.
