"Bluetooth Low Energy Health Profiles sample" encounter E_ACCESSDENIED 80070005


  • I want metro style app Bluetooth Low Energy Health Profiles sample can access Thermometer Health Service installed in Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Generic Attribute (GATT) Profile Drivers. However, I encountered 80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED) while Health Profile Metro App trying to access device.

    The error is in Thermometer.js. deviceFactory.getDeviceFromIdAsync returns error 80070005 .

                done(function (devices) {
                    // If devices were found, proceed with initialization
                    if (devices.length > 0) {
                        try {
                            // Use WPD Automation to initialize the device objects
                            var deviceFactory = new ActiveXObject("PortableDeviceAutomation.Factory");
                            var devServiceName = document.getElementById('deviceServiceName' + Constants.thermometerDeviceShortName);
                            devServiceName.innerText = devices[0].name;
                            // For the purpose of this sample we will initialize the first device
                            deviceFactory.getDeviceFromIdAsync(devices[0].id, function (device) {
                                // Initialize the temperature service
                                tempService = device.services[0];
                                // Set up ApplicationActivated to be called asynchronously (fire-and-forget mode)
                                tempService.onApplicationActivatedComplete = function() {};
                                // Set up ApplicationSuspended to be called asynchronously (fire-and-forget mode)
                                tempService.onApplicationSuspendedComplete = function() {};
                                var devs = DeviceData.getDevices();
                                var devId = Constants.thermometerDeviceIndex;
                                devs[devId] = {
                                    devId: devId,
                                    name: devices[0].name,
                                    description: devices[0].id,
                                    data: [],
                                    handler: function (timestamp, thermometerMeasurementValue) {
                                        try {
                                            var measuredValue = {
                                                timestamp: new Date(timestamp * 1000),
                                                value: thermometerMeasurementValue,
                                                toString: function () {
                                                    return this.value + " \u00B0C @ " + this.timestamp;
                                            if (uiVisible) {
                                                UIHelper.updateUI(Constants.thermometerDeviceShortName, Constants.thermometerDeviceIndex, measuredValue);
                                        } catch (exception) {
                                            WinJS.log && WinJS.log(exception.toString(), "sample", "error");
                                tempService.onTemperatureMeasurement = devs[devId].handler;
                                tempInitialized = true;
                                UIHelper.refreshUI(Constants.thermometerDeviceShortName, Constants.thermometerDeviceIndex);
                            }, function (errorCode) {
                                WinJS.log && WinJS.log("Getting the device failed with error: " + errorCode.toString(16), "sample", "error");
                        } catch (exception) {
                            WinJS.log && WinJS.log(exception.toString(), "sample", "error");

    I've followed the instructions in Forum post Why access denied (80070005) when I run Metro Simple bluetooth LE Controller using TICC2540 Dev kit in Win8 release preview. I created the Device Metadata Package on my local Win8 64bit Desktop, but I still encounter error 80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED). 

    Are the following values wrong for Bluetooth Low Energy Health Profiles sample ?
    I have remove the Bluetooth Low Energy device and reinstall again, and reboot again, but I still has 80070005 error.

  • Have you enabled test signing and rebooted?

  • I have launched Command Prompt(Admin) console window, run "bcdedit /set testsigning on", and then reboot Win8 Desktop PC. I found "Test Mode" showing in the bottom right corner of desktop.
    However I still encounter error 80070005 in
    Thermometer.js. deviceFactory.getDeviceFromIdAsync().

  • Uncheck the "Access Custom Driver" box in the Device Metadata Authoring Wizard and redeploy the metadata. This box is only intended for custom WDF drivers accessed via IDeviceIoControl.
