FIX: Wi-Fi profiles cannot be installed when you use IHV configuration in Windows Embedded Compact 7

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have an independent hardware vendor (IHV) Extension that is loaded on a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device.

  • You try to use an IHV Native Wi-Fi Extension for Windows Embedded Compact 7.

  • You use CmAddConnectionConfig() to add a profile that will use the IHV Extension.

  • You add an <IHV> tag in the XAML file.

  • You build the IHV Extension DLL.

In this situation, the build fails.

The expected behavior is that the IHV Extension DLL configuration entry points will be called by using QueryUIRequest(DOT11EXTIHV_QUERY_UI_REQUEST), ProcessUIResponse(DOT11EXTIHV_PROCESS_UI_RESPONSE), and IsUIRequestPending(DOT11EXTIHV_IS_UI_REQUEST_PENDING).

Resolution
