Networking – D-Link SharePort USB Network Utilty on Windows 8

networkingtroubleshooting

I'm just installed D-link's SharePort software on my fresh Windows 8. Installation went well, but won't start even after rebooting the os.
I have tried to run in compatibility mode, alse.

Does someone know how could I make it working?
The version I'm using: SharePort v1.17B01

I had the same problem, tried versions 3.x and 4.x of SP (and 1.14 as well). 1.x works as you've described and later versions install and run but don't find any SP "server".

To conclude, 1.17b01 goes well with my other PC with Windows 7 on board, so the problem was the software.

I found ftp://ftp.dlink.pl/software/SharePortClient_sw_revNA_1-20_eu_multi_20121126.zip – this works okay with Windows 8, at least for me.
