Qualification on the question: This is using the Windows BT stack.
If I run the Toshiba stack on same machine all works as expected, connection and communications occur.
Major difference being Windows BT stack does not hold connection pegged up unless an app asks to open the device. I had the Toshiba stack set to keep connection pegged up all the time.
