I'm developing for Windows 8, and I have an SCL3711 NFC Card Reader.
Windows detects it's regular driver and has installed it seamlessly, but it doesn't see it as a proximity device. I need to connect my windows 8 laptop to my windows 8 developer phone but my phone is not being recognized as a proximity device. When I run a sample application the
ProximityDevice.GetDefault() returns null. Do I have a missing driver perhaps or do I have the wrong hardware?
Any ideas on how I can connect my phone to my PC via NFC? All I need to do is send some text between the two devices - a sort of peer-to-peer connection but since my PC is not recognizing my phone I do not know how to send the data.
Edit: I have installed the NXP Near Field Proximity Provider and there is now a Proximity Device in the Device Manager. However I do not know how this can be connected to the phone.
Also, I have found this method http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/windowsphone/develop/microsoft.phone.secureelement.cardemulationmode(v=vs.105).aspx which enables the phone to work in Card Emulation Mode. However there is no sample code which I can follow. Does anyone have any tips on how I can use it?
