For this reason NetSetMan Touch uses another approach: It provides a touch-friendly user interface for activating profiles while relying on the desktop application for the configuration and the actual activation process. So when activating a profile your desktop will come up showing you the progress and results in the activation dialog of NetSetMan (Pro) that you're already familiar with.
To do so follow this step by step:
- Create an empty text file: right-click on your desktop, New, Text Document. Make sure you see the file extension “.txt” (if you don't see it, activate file extensions first!).
- Rename the file (including its extension) to “fix.nsm”. Confirm the dialog asking you if you really want to change the extension.
- Right-click the file: Open with, Choose default program...
- Make sure “Use this app for all .nsm files” is checked and click “Network Settings Manager”. If it's not listed there, choose: More options, Look for another app on this PC. Then find “netsetman.exe” in its program installation folder.
