    The Application Has An Issue


      I keep getting the error message "The Applicaition Has An Issue" while trying to connect to the Netgear Push2TV. I had recently updated all my drivers and such and it was working fine until a couple weeks after. The limited solutions that Intel gives are all pretty basic and none have resolved the problem. I can see the adapter in the connection box, just can't connect.

      I had updated to Windows 7 Service Pack 1 after updated my drivers. Could that be the issue? Intel's diriver detection utility says I'm all good. I tried turning off Windows Firewall to see if that was the issue but it's not and there are permissions to allow the Pan and Widi app when it's on.


      Any ideas?

          Sorry you're having this issue. Could you check the version of the WiFi driver (in device manager) and the WiDi software (in the Help menu of the WiDi software)?  Also, while you are in device manager, could you tell me which model WiFi adapter you have?

            I'm having this problem too - although my adapter (D-Link Mainstage) shows up in the WiDi list, it won't connect.   I have a Dell XPS-15 with Windows 7 (64 bit); Intel Core i5; an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 wireless adapter with driver version (6/21/2011) and version of the WiDi software.  I ran into this same problem yesterday setting things up, but finally got everything working last night once I enabled Internet Connection Sharing on my internet wireless connection.  But today, I'm back to not being able to get the Mainstage to connect to the laptop.  When I click on connect, the screen goes black for a second, then comes back up, but nothing happens on the TV.  Then the message "The Application Has An Issue" comes up, and I get a bubble pop up telling me that Intel My WiFi Technology has been disabled, and when I open that utility, the Mainstage device has been blocked.  I've checked my firewall software (McAfee), and both "WiDiApp" and "Wireless PAN DHCP and DNS Server" have "Full" permissions.  I notice in the Network Sharing Center as well that the ProSet connection always shows up as an unidentified network, and always gets labeled a "work" network - I dont' get any question asking me if that's the type of network it is, or what I want to call it or set it to.  Hopefully you can provide some insight into what's going wrong so I can get this up and running again.

              I have the same issue with my Belkin Screencast.  I have the latest drivers and software and when i fire up Intel Widi, it sees the adapter (the TV even moves from the screensaver to the home screen so i know they are talking) but when i click connect, the app sort of hangs there and then fails and i get the pop up box  saying the application has a problem.

                Dell N7110 Windows 7 - 64 bit - I had the same problem when opening the WIDI program, it just hangs for about a minute, and flashs an error at the end, but its so fast I can not see what it is saying.  Everything was working fine before the windows update (around 2 weeks back) - It also caused problems with my network drivers, and firewall, but I was able to get them working.   I uninstalled the video driver, and the Intel proset/wireless, and tried to uninstall the Widiapp.exe, but was not able to do so.  Tried to unistall with Revo uninstaller, it removed it, but I can not install the software.  It tells me the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.  It is not able to find widi.msi.  I try to direct it back to the file I downloaded, but it can not find it.


                Can any one offer some suggestions?   I am at a loss, as to why it sees it as being on a network.


                Thanks for any help you can offer.

                  update: was able to correct the error which indicated the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource, went to How to troubleshoot problems when you install or uninstall programs on a Windows-based computer, and ran the fix it utility, and it removed WIDI R from the registry, but now I am back to the error, when I try to install of 1721 there is a problem with the Windows installer, a program required for this install to complete could not be found.  Before I uninstalled the program, I followed instruction from another post, that advised to rename the widi file, and then install, but that did not work, and I assume having the program uninstalled would do the same thing.   Any advise?
