Nobody to answer this question ?
I did some more research myself; it leads me to ask my question in a different way;
when I try to send a file from my smartphone, why on my mini-PC no window pops-up, as it should, to ask if the PC user agrees for the file coming from the smartphone to be transferred to the PC ?
This window doesn't pop up, and of course, as a result, the transfer fails after a while as there was no answer to the question asked...
Is it a problem with Windows 8.1 ? (I verified that W8.1 installed on my mini-PC doesn't need any repair though)
Is it a problem with the Intel driver ? (or a problem with the way the driver has been installed on the mini-PC ?)
What prevents this window to pop-up as it should once the transfer is initiated from the smartphone ?
Thanks to anyone who could help
In Windows* 8.1 you will need to click on the Bluetooth* icon in the system tray and click on “Receive a file”.
Let me know if this works.
thanks for your reply.
When I send file from the smartphone (it says on the smartphone screen "sending file to the pc), no window pops up on the PC.
If I click on the bluetooth icon you can access from the Windows 8.1 bar via a little triangle, I only have the following options (excuse-me, I translate from French):
- add a bluetooth peripheric,
- (not functional: authorise the connection of a peripheric)
- display the bluetooth peripherics
- join a personal network
At not moment I have the option to click on "receive a file"...
My copy of Windows8.1 is up to date.
I suppose I have the correct Intel drivers for my 7260 AC card ?
I see you are missing the options to receive or send a file.
Please uninstall the current version of Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® Technology and install the previous one. Please let me know about the results.
Thank you so much joe_intel !!
As you suggested, I uninstalled the November (latest) version of Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® Technology and installed instead the July version, (number 17.1.1406.01) and it is fine now: I have indeed the requested options to send or receive a file ...
My Intel AC 7260 card seems fully functional now.
Again, I thank you very much as you are the only person who helped me.
I send you my best regards,
I am glad I was of help. I have reported the issue.
