Buggy Bluetooth driver causes Word to crash with Wordfast Classic

In some configurations with Wordfast Classic installed, Microsoft Word may crash either when launching a translation session, or when exiting. This can be caused by an older, buggy Bluetooth driver from Broadcom/Widcomm. Such configurations are often found on Bluetooth-enabled laptops that ship with Microsoft Office pre-installed. The problem occurs with different versions of Windows (eg, XP, Vista), different versions of Microsoft Office (eg. 2007, 2010) and different brands of laptops (eg. Lenovo, Dell, Hewlett-Packard etc.). This video shows where to look for the Send to Bluetooth menu option or icon in Microsoft Word and how to identify the Bluetooth version in Control Panel. The problem can be solved by uninstalling Bluetooth in Control Panel and rebooting. If newer, bugless drivers are available, they can be used to replace the buggy ones.
