Bluetooth Stack Switcher: Switch Between Multiple Bluetooth Drivers

Having a hard time switching between multiple Bluetooth stacks? Since Windows 7 doesn’t provide a convenient way to disable the current Bluetooth stack and activate the required one, switching has to be done manually. If you’re running 32-bit Windows, you can use Bluetooth Stack Switcher to quickly switch between configured Bluetooth stacks. It’s a tiny system tray tool that automatically finds and lists down installed Bluetooth drivers, letting you quickly choose the stack you want to activate. In case, the Bluetooth configuration file (bth.inf) gets corrupted, it can find the optimized Blutetooth configuration for your system and replace the corrupted/missing file.

As of this writing, the application can run only under 32-bit Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. The 64-bit version is in works, and will soon be available. After the application is installed, it will sit in system tray, and start finding the Bluetooth stacks. Once the scan process is finished, you can switch between Bluetooth stacks from system tray menu. If it fails to find the configured stacks, open Options and use Refresh available stacks option to scan system for all available Bluetooth stacks.
