A2DP in-box support in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have to port customer low energy BT stack to Windows 7 OS. May be we require to implement some of the profiles also. 

    Could any one please clarify my doubts:

    1) Whether Win7 support A2DP, AVRCP, HFP profiles?

    When i checked in the MSDN page it shows that Win7 support A2DP profile.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/dn133849(v=vs.85).aspx

    But the bluetooth.org mentioned that these profiles are not built-in in Windows 7. 

    https://www.bluetooth.org/tpg/QLI_viewQDL.cfm?qid=15409

     2) Also i have a doubt whether the profile driver exists in Kernel mode or User mode?

    3) BT profile driver can be developed as a User mode driver?

    Thanks & Best Regards,

    Vijayan

  • 1) the web page you mention clearly says win8 is when a2dp, hfbp and avcrp are supported. this is under the win8 setting

    > Support for the HFP, A2DP, and AVRCP Profiles

    2) profile drivers are in KM

    3) if it is rfcomm based, it is possible, but not a mainline scenario. I would stick with KM
