How do I get my apple wireless (bluetooth) keyboard to pair with my windows 7 Pro 64 bit machine?

I am using a logitech bluetooth adapter, and i've gotten this to work in the past, but after removing the apple keyboard as a bluetooth device I cant get it back. It finds the device, I can click into properties and check the box "drivers for keyboard, mice, etc (HID) under services, but it times out every time I try to connect. Normally at this point you'd get prompted to enter a pass code, but there's no prompt for it. Just the wait wheel spinning next to "connecting to device..." the finally this error:
adding this device to this computer failed
Adding the device failed resulting in an unknown error. The reported error code is: 0x80004005.
anybody able to get this working. new batteries, plenty of restarts, tried broadcome drives instead.
it seems to me that the last time i got this working i typed similar passcodes on this keyboard and one plugged into windows without being prompted for a passkey, but i could be making that up.
thanks for the help
