I'm looking for 64bit signed bluetooth drivers for Broadcom BCM2045 chipset.

Drivers available for AirLive BT-201USB based on this chipset have 64bit version but aren't signed and therefore I can't install them on Vista x64.

Did you try to contact Broadcom support? You could write an email to their Bluetooth customer service:

Thanks for info. I'll try to contact them. From what I know they license their bluetooth drivers only to manufacturers and an end-user can't obtain them directly from Broadcom. – Piotr Dobrogost May 5 '09 at 12:19
I found this page, with nice tool which detects, downloads and installs the latest version of Broadcom bluetooth drivers. This way I got installed drivers version dated 2009-04-22 which are 64bit and signed. – Piotr Dobrogost Jun 3 '09 at 13:43

I will try looking for a signed version of the drivers for you, but you can install unsigned drivers on Vista (32 or 64), it is just not advised by Microsoft.

Thanks David. I know I can do it but would like to have signed drivers. – Piotr Dobrogost May 5 '09 at 12:16
