Microsoft’s roadmap for support of Wi-Fi direct for non-Windows Store “classic” apps on Windows 8.x RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is Microsoft’s roadmap for support of Wi-Fi direct for non-Windows Store “classic” apps on Windows 8.x.  Will it be available for future or not ? At the recent BUILD conference in San Francisco, Wi-Fi direct for Windows Store apps was announced with the analysis that an NDIS Driver would need to be developed to support classic apps. Need a confirmation on this .

  • I'm afraid it is not avaiable now. There is nothing exposed to Windows Store apps that would allow you to initiate a WiFi connection between a Windows 8 device and a legacy device if they were not already connected manually through an access point.
