Win 7 32bit, dell E5450, ac-7265's bluetooth with the newest intel or dell driver, when other machine sends a file, it cannot pop up the hint dialog to receive the file.
If I install a clean win7 and then ac-7265's bluetooth driver, receiving and sending do work, but after install some other normal softwares and reboot several times, the receiveing is not available.
After reboot, the first sending from other machine o 7265's bluetooth always keeps failing, it seems that the first time just asks 7265's OS to launch some processes needed by bluetooth.
And the bluetooth icon of right-click menu disappears forever after I uninstall the driver and reinstall it, it means I cannot send files with right-click menu.
I just need sending and receiving files - very basic features of bluetooth, please fixed these bugs ASAP.
If the wireless adapter is the one installed by factory, Intel recommends to always obtain the latest drivers from the computer manufacturer as they are the right ones that match the requirements of your system. In this link, you can find the contact information of your computer manufacturer, in the case, Dell* for additional assistance and information: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/OEMs.html Computer Manufacturer Support Website
Now, in order for us to assist you further and understand better the nature of the issue, could you tell us what type of files you are trying to transfer?
We understand that after a clean install of Windows* 7, it works like a charm with no issue and then when you install normal software and reboot several times the file receiving then becomes unavailable, right ? What exactly do you mean? Could you provide more details?
When it fails, as you've mentioned, what exactly is the error message that shows?
Addtionally, we would like to inform you that not all files are supported when using Bluetooth* technology.
Here are some hints that might help you resolve this issue:
1. Make sure you Bluetooth* is turned on.
2. Make sure that the destination and the source are paired up.
3. Make sure you made your Bluetooth* device visible to other devices.
4. Make sure to check the box which allows other users to connect to your device.
5. Authenticate other users using the key to be typed in both devices.
6. Check your antivirus and firewall security settings as it may impact as well.
Please, check these steps and then report back to us.
1. I tested sending and receiving with normal *.txt files.
2. When it fails, the dialog of "Sending file..." stays for a long time, and the machine with ac-7265 did not respond at all (it should pop up a dialog to ask me to receive it.). The fail is same as this post: "Wireless-N 7260's bluetooth won't receive files, but can send them", and I deactivated "Btmshellex", but no use.
And I did a test in Bluetooth Settings >> Open receive window. Sending a file firstly, the receive window shows a new item to notice there is an incoming file (the file name is just the one I sent), but confirm dialog did not pop up. So I guess the ac-7265's driver has received the info of the incoming file, but did not pop up the confirm dialog successfully. After a while (at least 30 seconds), the receive window shows a new item to notice receive fail.
BTW, I do not need the confirm dialog, I hope the file was received at once because I send files often. Confirmation will only waste time. I used IVT' BT and Broadcom's BT, they all have no confirmation. Maybe you can add an option about confirm with the default value "false". Or skip the confirm to receive files directly, I think this is best.
Did you try the drivers from your computer manufacturer?
What about checking the antivirus and firewall security settings?
If after trying the drivers provided by your computer manufacturer you notice the issue still persists, you are welcome to try a clean installation of our generic drivers.

A clean uninstallation is always a good alternative as it removes all drivers and files that may be cause the issue and then you can download the drivers above. Another important recommendation is to have the BIOS updated as some Bluetooth*-related issues may be related to BIOS update.
Please, let us know as soon as you can if this helped you resolve this issue.
1. I tried dell's lastest driver and intel's 18.16.1 and 17.1.1406.01, the fail is same.
2. antivirus software not installed, windows firewall closed and no other firewalls.
3. the BIOS version is the latest.
To solve the problem, I installed win 7 three times, and one time I uninstalled softwares one by one until it is almost a clean Win7, but the fail remains. I feel the key point is the confirm dialog did not pop up successfully (the way to call rundll32 to pop up the dialog may be unreliable).
Now I send files to ac-7265 with Bluetooth File Transfer, that is:
Click the E5450 device icon in the source machine, click Bluetooth file transfer, then paste files in the folder, files can be sent successfully because this way does not need ac-7265 to pop up the confirm dialog. I hope the file can be sent with right-click menu (it is most convenient) but the way needs the confirm dialog.
If the bug cannot be fixed at once, I think skipping the confirmation is a solution.
