  2. What Is Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator

My computer has a bluetooth device which uses the default Windows 7 driver stack. When the 'Generic Bluetooth Adapter' device is activated in the device manager, a device named 'Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator' appears next to it.

What is the purpose of the enumerator device and why is it separate from the bluetooth device itself?

While the update in itself has been relatively trouble-free there are certain aspects that need fine tuning. A Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator is a protocol set, or set of standards or guidelines, essentially used to organize and facilitate the data transfer between remote Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth Enumerators are sometimes referred to as Bluetooth dongles, or adapters.

Additional explanation of the question as requested in the comments

I'd like to know why Microsoft (or whoever) decided to split Bluetooth functionality into 2 different devices (unlike most other devices, which are represented by just a single device in the device manager) as well as what the functionality of this secondary Bluetooth 'enumerator' device is.

One answer below claims that the (sole?) purpose of the enumerator device is to enumerate/cycle through connected Bluetooth devices and return information about the capabilities of them. But if so, it seems odd that:

1) This functionality is not located in the main Bluetooth device but separated into a secondary device.

2) That this is the sole purpose of the enumerator device.

If this is indeed the case, it would be nice with an explanation of the rationale behind this decision.

Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator comes into play when you plug the Bluetooth device without the driver wherein Windows 7 automatically installs its driver.

After Windows detect Bluetooth device, it is controlled by Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator and not the third-party driver.

In other words, it is used like a management system which can enumerate (cycle through) all the bluetooth devices and what each device can do.

Won't let me rename bth.inf to bth.bak. Some program, TrustedInstaller, needs to be accessed before any filename changes will be allowed.
