How to configure

You need .NET 3.5 to run winhotspot (Virtual wifi Hotspot / Virtual wifi router)
In windows 7  .NET 3.5 is packaged , If its not enabled you can check it and enable it.
Follow any of the two options .
OPTION 1  Install dot net with a single command in windows 7 , I have not tested windows 8.
Go command prompt and type this with out double quotes to install .NET package.
"start /w pkgmgr /iu:WCF-HTTP-Activation;WCF-NonHTTP-Activation;"

OPTION 2
1.1) Type "OptionalFeatures.exe" in run menu .
1.2) Go to start   ->
control panel ->
next select programs->


NEXT select turn windows features on or off







you will see the below windows optional features window


Check 3.5 WCF-HTTP-Activation and WCF-NonHTTP-Activation is selected and say ok.

Now it should run with out problem , If it does'nt run Please mail me or use the feedback page.
If it works and help you please spread the world about winhotspot by like button on app for facebook and follow us on twitter (you know advertising products by paying money is difficult ).






                               

               Check how to start winhotspot.



Thanks for using winhotspot

Harsha

  2. It's really a good idea to create a GUI Interface to these Netsh Commands. It will help various users to create by itself a Wi-Fi hotspot. Good idea for a development, and you should make it a less weighty on the system. Good luck and keep up the work!

    1. Hi,
      It means your Windows Virtual adapter /Drivers is not installed.
      Which OS are you using windows 8 ?
      or windows 7.
      If you are using windows 7 use the repair tools, In the repair tools click on ad-hoc button and then give a name and password for ad-hoc and click next.
      So that windows will install virtual wifi drivers. after that you can go to task bar and click on wifi signal icon and right click on ad-hoc network you just created and remove it.

      Now you can go back to winhotspot to start virtual wifi router.

      If you have trouble ping me with teamviewer ID and password to windowshotspot@gmail.com i can help you.

      Thanks

    2. Thanks for the answer. Yes in SAFE MODE it starts to work! I can see a new unamed WIFI net on my Nokia N8. I check it and I give the HotSpot Name after that the password, then I see on the phone for a little while the real HotSpot name and then it starts to connect but after few seconds I get the message CONNECTION NOT POSSIBLE, WIFI NETWORK NOT FOUND. I do not know if this is connected with the Phone or with WINHOSPOT.Thanks for suggestion

    3. I have others question for you. Is it normal that on the external device (i.e Nokia Phone N8) the wifi network transmitted by WinHotSpot is shown as undefined/unamed. I was expecting to see the same name I put as Hotspot Name on WinHotspot window. Why the program is partially working if I use SAFE MODE? What is its purpose?
      A little bug on the SW:
      The little square for "Run in safe mode" it's not active, the cursor must be over the text to activate it. I lost few minutes to discover it

      Thanks
      John

  17. I can not get Internet access on the network computers. The internet source is a 4G dongle with "Allow other user to connect..." enabled. The dongle appears the Winhotspot "Share Internet" box. In Network and Sharing both the dongle and the wireless connection are Access Type: Internet. The other computer connects to the network (I can see the shared files on the host computer) but no internet access. I tried safe mode, no change. Can you help?

  20. Great little program.
    Was running fine until recently, now the hotspot starts up and I can connect to it with other computers but cant access the internet with it. I have checked the adapter and it says my wifi is "shared" with the lan connection *12 as is always has been but not getting any joy.
    Maybe some settings somewhere could have been changed by the likes of "advanced system optimizer" or something?
    Any ideas what could be going on? and of course how to fix it :-(

    After enabling the 2 I tried running the winhotspot again but the moment I clicked START winhotspot it disappeared but it did not run.

  32. No buddy it wont work on Windows XP SP2 also. Connectivity might work.. I am not sure..
    And please do not use winhotspot along with connecitify , As connectify will make driver changes and you will have virtual wifi driver problem.
    and will not be able to use winhotspot as a virtual wifi router.
