    @nana kobina: That would be great. If you post your project on a site like Codeplex, Github, CodeProject let us know (via the Contact Us). In the mean time, I've removed your comment (since it had your complete and un-obfuscated email address) to avoid you getting any spam, etc.

    The sample looks good, but like every other Wifi Direct/proximity sample I've tried it fails with "The wireless local area network interface is powered down and doesn't support the requested operation. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80342002)" when the call to PeerFinder.FindAllPeersAsync is made on my Surface RT.

    It sounds like this is an issue with the Surface RT/Pro as documented here: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsapps/en-US/5d3bf300-6a20-45e1-81fc-66b5e2e6cdd6/peerfinderfindallpeersasync-causing-error-the-wireless-local-area-network-interface-is-powered?forum=winappswithcsharp

    Is there something that needs to be configured on the surface to make this work?
