VirtualWiFi on WinXP 64bit(or 2k3 64bit) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I Own A laptop with an "Intel(r) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN" (as stated on the device manager) card operated on a 64bit version of windows XP


    As reported earlier on this thread http://forums.microsoft.com/MSR/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3239217&SiteID=37 this card shuld be nativly supported by the software, but when I tried to install the service and run it, it stated that the device does not have one of the keywords.

    I Guess the service could not find the device becuse the comperation is case-sensitive while the keywords are "wireless" and "wifi" my card has "Wireless" and "WiFi"

    Becuse I had a problem recompiling the code as mention @ the F.A.Q. I tried to hack vwifi.dll and hex-edit wireless to "Wireless", that did not bear any fruits.

    But when I went to my WiFi Connection properties it DID mention that it has the vWifi driver installed onto the stack.

    when I tried "manual install" windows refused to recognize the drivers on the inf files.


    As fas as I know 32 bit drivers aren't supported while 32Bit applications are,

    So I tried recompiling the driver under 64bit build enviroment (using not the DDK, but the newer WDK 2008)

    I Got some error regarding a certin define in the code, after I did a litle bypass to get the code to compile, it did.

    But I was yet unable to get Windows Driver Stack to install the virtual driver on my WiFi Card.


    Can anyone help me of give me some tips about how to run Virtual WiFi on the 4965AGN under Windows XP 64bit SP2?


    btw, trying to compile the whole folder (as mentioned in the F.A.Q.) got me 12 total errors.

  • 32 bit drivers are never compatable with 64 bit windows.

    Also The Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN does not, unfortunately, support virtual WiFi. Neither is it ever supported in XP, but only in Windows 7.
