this link contains updated testing app for the WIN32 BLE stack:

using this app i can:
1) discover the OSTC+
2) list it's services
3) list characteristics and descriptors for a service
4) it has a prompt that asks if you want to write / read descriptors /
- using the prompt i can enable notifications by writing 0100 to a
certain descriptor.
- i can then enter the dive computer into download mode by writing BB
to a certain characteristic.

this app can be used to debug if the Qt WIN32 stack works for the
devices we are having problems with.
next step would be to attach libdivecomputer to this and debug a
complete download, but i'm not sure where i would have the time to do
