Windows HID API and Bluetooth Low Energy

Xiaofan_ChenXiaofan_Chen Member - All Emails Posts: 208

We have one discussion with regard to Bluetooth Low Energy HID device
(eg: Xbox Series Controller Model 1914), is it true the normal Windows HID
API does not work BLE HID device?

Ref: hidapi discussion
https://github.com/libusb/hidapi/issues/282

It is said that BLE HID support might have been added Windows 10 1809 and the
API don't allow access to BLE HID devices from UWP but Windows desktop app
should be able to do it.

Just wondering anyone got the pointer for such information. Thanks.

Best regards,
Xiaofan
