Re: Disable Bluetooth protocol

What steps have you follwed so far?

I don't have a USB enabled machine to test on but I would assume you would use device management.

Create a device definition based off bus type: bluetooth.

Create a Plug and Play device rule to include that bluetooth device definition, user groups and tell it to block.

See if that does what you are looking for.

Re: Disable Bluetooth protocol


I have this quastion too.

And i tru to create a device definition with bus type: bluetooth, usb (because the bluettooth addapter attach to my pc by usb ports), and create a Plug and Play device rule to include that definition.  But my rule doesn't work properly.

On another hand, i try to make a device definition with this properties:

     - Device Classes:

                    Adapter Devices


    - Device Instance ID

    - Device Name:

                    Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator

   - USB Class Code:

                    E0h-Wireless Controller

But the rule doesn't work again ...

What can i do? Could you please help me... !?

Re: Disable Bluetooth protocol

It's likely the item you are looking for doesn't meet the description provided.  Create a monitor rule with very basic definitions.  Simply a rule with USB or Bluetooth alone should trigger on the device to create the appropriate rule.
