    You can do it through the registry or in the Policy.

    Except that this would technically be a violation of the Windows EULA. The limitation is there to try and encourage people to buy the server editions of Windows.

    The 100% legal and cheap method is to simply use some means other than SMB/CIFS to share files. FTP, AFS, NFS, HTTP, to name a few starting points that you can use on your own computer. Then there's also dropbox or even using a public bittorrent tracker and creating a torrent for whatever files you want to share.

    Incorrect asvent. There is no violation of the Eula, when a user or administrator makes changes through the registry or GPO. Also it is not to encourage people to purchase server editions.

    That would be due to your hotspot only allows that max number of clients. The max you are only allowed under MS rules, is 20 clients.

    To begin with, Windows hosted network allows 100 clients by default:

    You didn't even bother to check this fact. In OP's case a third party app has changed the number.

    What on earth does file sharing have to do with network and Internet access? The hosted network sharing is used to share the Internet connection.

    Exactly. If the max number of clients needs to be changed it is absolutely not a violation of Windows EULA.

    @Sufriadi, you could try to remove the hosted network, then recreate it, this should set the max clients value to default 100.
