While this seems to be the only WORKING tool to share a WiFi connection to date (I've tried them all), it still gives me a BSOD about every couple of hours. This is on Windows 10, and using the (paid) Max version.

Its in not a rocket science to create a hostednetwork in windows 7 and above with few commands.
Winhotspot is a free ware and tiny 100 portable app is Best

It is important to note that Connectify allows users to connect to the internet through Wireless while sharing the connection to another device through Wireless. This has not been seen in alternatives (sharing a LAN connection, which Connectify can do as well).

Its in not a rocket science... Even winhotspot.com software does it
