    Raspberry Pi Adapater not working on windows 10.


    The initial scenario:
    I used Microsoft Miracast on my laptop to broadcast my phone to it's display. I planned to do this with my PC, but lack a wireless card. After browsing a windows forum on how to Miracast to see if there was another way I found this page:

    After reading this, I then bought the official Raspberry Pi adapter.

    The active problem:
    Despite the windows website showing me that adapter after following a link from it's Miracast page, I still got the "The device doesn't support Miracast." message.
    I later found, that the device is either not being detected, or lacks drivers. As I did not find "Official Raspberry PI adapter" on my device list, but did find this:

    I looked around for windows 10 drivers, and all I heard when reading through old posts was "Can't be done"

    Anything I can do? Thanks for your time.

    Just putting this here: It seems when I asked it to redirect me the site sent me to the wrong page -_- Welp, 8 down the drain I guess.
