Need more information.....

What type of device are you using (laptop or desktop) ? What do you want to connect using Bluetooth ? Have you previously used Bluetooth with the computer and the other device ? Have you reached out to the manufacturers of both devices ? Until you clarify more, not likely to get much help.

"BT_21.40.5_32_Win7"

That's the wrong driver package. Do you see it now?

Somehow I have solved the error: The procedure entry point SetDefaultDllDirectories could not be located in the dynamic link KERNAL32.dll.

But now a new issue has been created - Error: The Installation XML file is either missing or corrupted. The setup application will exit!

All of you are requested to help me in fixing this.
Due to covid-19, it is very difficult to come and spend money. I'm in the interior of a village right now so asking for help.

If I do not get help, I will think of going to the city from where I have bought the product.
thank you |

Going back to the city (shop?) where you bought that driver or that desktop (that are the only products you mentioned in your posts) seems a good idea. They might be able to help better than we can.

With details, we can see one issue.

But I can't tell if you found the right driver. Trying to install a 32 bit driver on Windows 7 SP1 64 Bit OS will hit issue after issue.

-> My advice is to know what Bluetooth device you have, be sure your Windows 7 has SP1 and the other patches then get the 64 bit driver for your still unknown make and model Bluetooth adapter.

All this here would NEVER be done. The client would be supplied a plug and play USB Bluetooth dongle and be charged about 20 USD. To work a driver issue would start at about 75 USD and go up from there!

BT_21.40.5_32_Win7 is only for some Intel Bluetooth hardware.

I'm running into folk that want to install said driver but don't know what their Bluetooth hardware is.

From memory this version DEMANDS not only Intel hardware but Windows 7 be up to date with SP1 and other updates along with current BIOS and system drivers.

I'm finding this is often too much to ask of everyday users so we take such into the office/shop to sort it all out.

That can be expensive so my advice is to spend 10 bucks or less on a ready to use Windows 7 SP1 compatible USB Bluetooth adapter that uses Windows 7 SP1's native Bluetooth drivers.

I rarely run into Windows 7 SP1 32 bit machines. All have been 64 bit to date.

Why do you think this is the exact driver you need?
Where does it come from?
What does the tech support of the maker of the dongle say about this issue?

If all else fails, consider upgrading to Windows 10. It's free.
