What is Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

After installing Windows 7 on a HP Notebook I have a network adapter called "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter", I have been searching for information on this and I know what it's for, but I can't find any information about how to set it up or get it working. Strange if a new function like this is not documented any where :-) Some one know where Microsoft expain the use of this adapter?

Hi All,

Currently this feature is a development platform that exists only for application developers. Since this is a development platform any support would need to go through the application developer.

Here is a link to information regarding this platform on the Microsoft MSDN site:
