network projection woes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a tablet with an OEM version of windows 8 32 bit.

    I wish to utilise a networked data projector, which is one of the great features of windows 8.

    Normally, go into add-remove programs, go to windows features and turn on Network Projection. I am able to do this on my laptop running windows 8 Pro, 64-bit and it works a treat. However when I go to add the feature on my tablet, it jumps straight from MSMQ to Print and Doc services.

    Is this an undocumented loss for lower versions of windows?

    Is it possible to download the feature and add it in?

  • Hi,

    This issue can be caused if this feature is removed from OEM system or corrupted system files.

    First, let’s run following command to repair Windows Features:

    Please make sure to run CMD as Administrator: 

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    Then, we can try whether we can use command line to enable this feature: 

    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename: Microsoft-Windows-MobilePC-Client-Premium-Package-net /all

    If we still fail to enable this feature, please use following command to scan system files:

    SFC /scannow

    Please post back if there is any error during the process when running this command line.

    Keep post.

  • Hi,

    In your feature list, it seems that there is no Network projector which has the feature name “Microsoft-Windows-MobilePC-Client-Premium-Package-net” in your windows.

    Would you please first check with your OEM manuafacture to know whether their OEM designed system still contain this feature?

    If they have this feature in, we may need to repair you system for next plan.

    Look forward to your response.

  • restorehealth and the sfc command worked, but the enable-feature failed with the error that the feature name was not recognised. I then ran a get-feature, the output of which was:

  • I am trying to get on to Acer to work it out, but am sure that if I could see their face on the other end of email/phone there would be this bland stare as they almost no idea what  am talking about.

    Hi,

    We can try to refresh Windows 8 without missing your personal settings. But we may need to reinstall some programs later. Please backup your important files before doing this:

    To refresh your PC

    1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.

    (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)

    1. Under PC settings, tap or click General.
    2. Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, tap or click Get started.
    3. Follow the instructions on the screen.

    Note: The apps that came with your PC or you installed from Windows Store will be reinstalled, but any apps you installed from other websites and DVDs will be removed. Windows puts a list of the removed apps on your desktop after refreshing your PC.

    Hope this would be helpful.
