bluetooth peripheral device driver

Hello,

Could anyone help please:
My laptop is VPCSE17FX, the system is Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit, and I can't send siles from Sony Xperia phones to this laptom using BT. Adding new device and pairing are ok, but wheb it comes to installing driver he message says "...not successful" and a yellow exclam. mark appears next to thsi device. When troubleshooting the added device, the message says "...driver could not be found". Still I can send from laptop to phones but not the opposite way round. With other phones (for example Blackberry) it's ok both ways from and to laptop, but with "native" Sony phones (I tried xperia S and Play), only from laptop is working. Phones connect well with each other and other devices.
Re-installed all BT related drivers from this site - didn't help.
The same problem was with the pre-installed Win 7 Home edition.
Tried downloading BT software from broadcom.com but their installer gets stuck when detecting BT device in the laptop (this was proposed in sony phone forum).
Any advice where and how the subject driver could be found?
Many thanks

Hello,
Welcome to the User Discussion Forums.
We can help if you need assistance with settings on your laptop,
however since you are sending files from the phone, we would recommend visiting our Xperia forums here - ( if this is not the phone forum you previously visited):

The Sony Mobile Support Forum is a place for Sony Xperia Smartphone and Sony ericsson users from around the world to get help and help others. The Sony Xperia Support team from Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and your blogs will be around to help from time to time
