Bluetooth on Windows 11

We have received several reports from our users telling us that they cannot pair their ArborSonic3D with a Windows 11 PC.

The reason behind this is that Windows 11 has introduced a new Bluetooth setting that, on its default setting, prevents the pairing of classic Bluetooth devices.

To resolve this issue, please upgrade to ArborSonic3D 5.3.161: download the update from our Downloads section.

If, for some reason, you cannot perform the upgrade, follow these steps to resolve the issue manually:

  1. Select Start, then type settings.
  2. Select Settings Bluetooth & devices
  3. Scroll down and make sure that Bluetooth Devices Discovery is set to Advanced
  4. After this ArborSonic3D should show up during pairing
