BLE TinyShield - connect to PC via bluetooth 4.0 dongle

Hi

I want to control a dc motor (only on / off) via BLE.
I bought the TinyDuino + USBShield + MotorShield + BLEShield
and a Bluetooth 4.0 Dongle (csr 8510 a10)

http://www.amazon.de/CSL-Bluetooth-Adapter-Technologie-neuester-Standard/dp/B00C68IQ3C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397843856&sr=8-1&keywords=bluetooth+4.0

I dont have a new smartphone so I want to use Dongle in Windows7 PC.

I am able to control the motor via USB cable and Serial Monitor of Arduino IDE. (Without BLEShield)

I uploaded the example software (http://tiny-circuits.com/learn/using-the-bluetooth-low-energy-tinyshield/) and after two days of trying i managed to pair the Tinyduino with my PC (Duino blinks two times per sec.) 

(It only works with BlueSoleil Stack Software. CSR Harmony stack blocks the COM ports. Toshiba stack doesn't find the duino)

The software creates two COM ports (COM3 an COM4)
I can select the com port in serial monitor (or in putty) but i can't write something!
In BlueSoleil Software COM ports are marked as "incoming" but I can not change it.

How can I send data to the duino as with serial monitor and USB-cable?
Can someone advise other bluetooth stack software for WIN7?

Hope someone can help me!
Thanks!
