Release Notes

This is a compiled executable for those without the ability to compile from source. This preview was compiled from the source available at revision 28539 in the repository in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1.

I can't believe I originally forgot to mention the requirement to run with administrator privileges for this release! If you try to run without admin privilege and everything's working, the program will fail to disable your wireless adapter with code 5 (access denied). You should enable run as administrator by right clicking on the executable, choosing "Properties" and going to the "Compatibility" tab. Check "Run this program as an administrator." This does, of course, require you to actually have administrative privileges.


Reviews for this release

Works better than the batch files and other scripts found on the internet. I created a scheduled task and set it to hidden and it does a good job of disabling the wifi card upon connection of the wired network.

Glad I could help! It's been forever since I worked on this utility, but it's good to hear that somebody that's not me is getting some use from it!
