I know there have been a few other post on getting sketches uploaded to the arduino BT, but none of the solutions seem to work for me. I just bought a Arduino BT V06 and am using Windows XP with Arduino17. I want to upload the example Blink program to the device but cannot do it. I get the following:

avrdude done. Thank you.
I enabled upload_verbose per some previous discussions. I have tried pressing and tried releasing the reset button on the arduino at different times when uploading per some previous discussions, but nothing seems to work. I get the same error every time.
The BT device is recognized by my computer and I am able to start the serial port service using the BleSoleil software on my PC. Every time I hit the reset button on the Arduino to try to get the sketch uploaded it kills the serial connection to the PC (but still paired) and I need to start that service again.
I'm at a loss here for what to do. There must be an easier way to run a simple sketch on the bluetooth board. Are there any new suggestions to get this to work? If i bought/made a ICSP programmer, would that make my life easier to get sketches onto the board?
