Cannot send file over bluetooth on windows 8 pro; missing bluetooth file transfer


I recently performed a clean install of windows 8 pro on my asus ux31a. I was trying to send some pictures to my phone over bluetooth. I already scoured the net for some solution and I came up empty. I already checked the bluetooth service and it is in automatic, I sent files from my phone to my pc and it worked. However, when I try to send a file from my pc to the phone there is no option for bluetooth file transfer.

It is not on the right click+send to option
It is not on the charm bar+search+apps
It is not on the right click+bluetooth icon on the taskbar

its frustrating! I even reinstalled my drivers in case it will help.

Thannks in advance!

In windows XP, you could have used squirt.exe. Type fsquirt at the command line to see if it still exists in windows 8.
