Let me tip my hand.

I wrote and now maintain some apps that work over Bluetooth in PalmOS, Windows Mobile, Windows and now Android.
At no time has ANY device paired with the USB adapter. That is, you pair it then take the adapter to another PC and the pairing follows. So it's incorrect to think you pair with the adapter.
Also if this device mandates a driver install from CD, it is not the same in function as the model I noted. At first I would help clients get USB adapters working but later for the 2 buck device I can't offer support for adapters far and wide and make a buck so I keep one on hand for the support call now and then like yours.
If a client wants me to fix their adapter I first check if the drivers are for the OS in question before I proceed and only then will I proceed. It appears the drivers have failed to install so it's game over.
Finally, not one USB adapter has required me to pair during installation.
I know this is upsetting but I've only been at this over a decade so let's hope you can figure out what's a miss with your current adapter.
In parting, details would help. For example if you had shared it was the Kingston USB Bluet BT-2D then I would have checked around but the laptop details are missing too.
I also know folk are not happy that all this is so technical. Not sure if I can cure that.
