Once you have downloaded the app you need to configure the network.

When the program is opened in your browser there will be a pop-up help window. It might not be necessary but it allows you to check if you have the correct drivers on your computer. Try running it first before making any changes.
If you are a person who uses a number of VPNs then once you have downloaded the app you might not be able to log onto some of the VPN networks and it will need to be uninstalled. If you do not have that problem the app will do as it is advertised and you will be able to turn your Windows Laptop into a hotspot wherever it is connected to the internet
