BLE LESC with win 10

A.P 1 Reputation point


I've tried to enable the BLE LESC (LE secure connection) option when pairing as specified in the BT 4.2 protocol, and my previously successful connections fail consistently.
The LESC bit is set to 1 in my peripherals, and they are able to complete a successful connection when I ran the central with a different driver than the windows drivers.
This points me to a problem with the windows drivers in UWP under this namespace: Windows.Devices.Bluetooth

Looking online, I found this question from 2017, in which it is stated the LESC is not yet supported with win 10, but will be added later. Has this been added yet?

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Currently, Windows supports Secure Connections. It was added as part of the 5.0 Bluetooth spec, so it would only be available in newer versions of Windows.
