Wi-Fi Direct System Interoperability test fails in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2

This article describes an issue in which the Wi-Fi Direct System Interoperability test fails in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2. A hotfix is available to fix this issue. Before you install this hotfix, see the Prerequisites section.
Symptoms
After you install August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 or a later version of update rollup, the Wi-Fi Direct Group Owner (GO) Re-invoke scenario fails.

When a Wi-Fi Direct device reconnects to a Windows 8.1-based device, Windows will reject the connection. When this issue occurs, the following certification tests fail:
  • Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA) certification tests: P2P-5.1.9 and P2P-5.1.10.
  • Microsoft Windows 8.1 Hardware Certification Kit (HCK) Wi-Fi Direct Scenario Tests: BasicPlus and ReInvoke Stress (GO Re-invoke scenario) logo tests.
In this situation, some Wi-Fi Direct devices may have problems connecting to Windows 8.1-based devices.
Resolution
To fix this issue, we have released a hotfix for Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2.

Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 file information and notes

Important Windows 8.1 hotfixes and Windows Server 2012 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that's listed under "Windows 8.1/Windows Server 2012 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:
    VersionProductMilestoneService branch
    6.3.960 0.17 xxxWindows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2RTMGDR
    6.3.960 0.18 xxxWindows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2RTMGDR
  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information" section. MUM, MANIFEST, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes aren't listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
