    Probelm Solved on Samsung Series 7 Slate:

    The missing peice of the puzzle was to install the windows 8 beta software/driver for the Intel HD Graphics 3000.

    My procedure was as follows with the latest drivers availabe at that time:
    1) Install latest wireless drivers & software from intel (Wireless_15.1.0s64.exe) Note: Make sure you install the software version noted by the "s" preceding the 64!
    2) Install the latest WiDi driver form intel (Setup 3.1.29.0.exe)
    3) Install the latest Intel HD Graphics 3000 driver for Windows 8 (win8_64_15280b)

    Before executing the installer exe go to properties > compatibility > set to windows 7. However, the installer ran without compatibility mode on the S7S.

    Already tried that and ran it as administrator. I get the same error. Exact error is.

    Intel WiDi. This platform is not compatible with Intel(R) WiDi or the application is in use.

    Works now. Some artifacts and some lag with high frame rate video, but it works. Perfect for what I need at school.

    What version of the widi app did you use? I able to see my adapter from my Samsung Series 7 Slate using Win8 but when I try and connect it throws an error.
