    Hello everyone,

    I want to write an app using OpenObex v1.3 (Win32) to communicate with a Nokia 7610 phone via USB.  Does OpenObex currently support USB on Windows?

    I looked thru the archives and saw a response to this back in 2006 - said that OO does not currently support USB.  Someone please tell me this isn't true.

    And if this is the case...does anyone here know whether OO developers are working on a solution?  And when it might be available?

    Thanks much...

      OpenOBEX supports Win32 and USB using Hendriks patch set. See
      Precompiled DLLs are available. See

      If your project is roughly "copy/push files with obex" see also for some easy language bindings. C# will be added soon (final tests are underway). Java is not really a target, we need to find interested developers yet.

      That is good news!  Thanks very much for the tip...

        I assume that the libusb-win32 filter setup will work out-of-the-box. I don't really know how to setup the plain libusb-win32. Feedback is appreciated. Also contact me by mail if you need support with the bindings. Especially if you want to try the new C# binding.
