View Full Version : Wiimote Connectivity Issue

07-01-2017, 01:36 PM

I'm trying to connect and use a wiimote with Vizard 5 and having an issue adding it.

The wiimote (Nintendo RVL-CNT-01) is connected via bluetooth (running windows 10).

I'm trying to add the wiimote as shown in the tutorial by first using "wii = viz.add('wiimote.dle')" and then "wiimote = wii.addWiimote()".

After the second line the console outputs

** NOTIFY: Connecting to wiimote
** ERROR: Failed to create extension sensor with wiimote.dle

The wiimote is on and connected at the time of running the script but doesn't ever get added.

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Can you confirm that you've followed the initialization instructions here (http://docs.worldviz.com/vizard/#Nintendo_Wiimote.htm)? Are you able to test the connection on a different machine perhaps with an older OS, such as win 7 or 8?

Hi Jeff,

Unfortunately all of the machines in the lab are on Windows 10.

As for initialization on the page it's just to pair and connect via Bluetooth right?

It shows up as connected under Bluetooth & other devices in settings.

Going to try it out on another Windows 10 PC now.

I have tried it on a Win 10 and Win 7. Works on the latter, but not the former.
