The Wireless LAN API update for Windows XP SP2

Postby blin » Wed Nov 29, 2006 4:52 pm

The Wireless LAN API update for Windows XP SP2 (KB918997) is now available
at the Microsoft download center.

Installing this set of application programming interfaces (APIs) will
enable you to create applications that can manage wireless LAN profiles and
connectivity on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) using the native
wireless functionality in Windows, called Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC)
service.

The update can be downloaded from
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... 3BAB-DC4E-
413F-AC71-158EFD1ADA50. The KB article is at
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918997.

The API update for Windows XP SP2 is a subset of the Wireless LAN APIs
introduced in Windows Vista, known as the Native WiFi API. This means
developers can write wireless client applications that work on both
platforms, Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista.

These APIs are documented in the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows Vista
and also on MSDN at

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/defau ... ibrary/en-
us/nativewifi/nwifi/portal.asp. The Windows Vista SDK can be downloaded
from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... =C2B1E300-
F358-4523-B479-F53D234CDCCF&displaylang=en.

I am not sure either of the links above will resolve.

For the non-programmers using the XP SP2 Wireless configuraton service and GUI, this recent client update is a must-do: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/info ... yLang%3den
