Hello zulhilmi930528,

What do you mean by: "…I wanna ask can Galileo Board's Bluetooth run in windows?"?

Are you using the Windows image for Galileo? If so, my best suggestion is for you to post your question in http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/Community.htm http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/Community.htm.

If I misunderstood you, and you are not using this image, could you explain us what you are trying to do? How are you enabling the Bluetooth interface? Or is that what you need help with? Or are you able to use Bluetooth and you would like to connect your board to your Windows PC?

Peter.

Sorry, I'm confused, you are no longer using the Windows image, right?

Now you are only trying to enable Bluetooth from the Arduino IDE, right?

If so, I would personally choose to make system calls. What exactly do you want to do with Bluetooth? I'll give you a quick example of what you can do with it from the Arduino IDE:

system("rfkill unblock bluetooth"); //This command enables Bluetooth

system("hcitool scan > /dev/ttyGS0"); //This commands sets the Edison to scan for Bluetooth devices and sends the output to the Arduino serial monitor

I just want to clarify that this will only work if you are using the Yocto image, and if you have set the PCIe card to work previously. If you need help getting the wireless card to work of you are using a different interface to use Bluetooth, let us know and we'll try to help you with that.

Unfortunately since the Windows image for Galileo is not supported by us, we are not familiar with such image, therefore trying to guide you with it might provide you more confusion than answers, which is why I highly suggest you to reach out to http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/Community.htm Microsoft, they probably have a more accurate answer for you.

Hi zulhilmi930528,

Could you provide more information about your question?

Are you using the Windows image or Yocto?

Regards,
