We need to change sender name / local device friendly name . I know this is possible using bluez / linux . there must be some way in windows as well . Please let me know how this can be achieved using Bluetools ?

This is not possible in Windows and thus not in BlueTools.
The Microsoft stack doesn't allow it all and the Widcomm stack stopped supporting it a few versions back.

It could be possibly if you hack in the registry or something, but nothing's supported through the stack.

No, I don't know, it was just an idea how it could be done. Not sure if it's possible.
