    I have a mid 2012 15" MBP running Windows 10 Pro in a Boot Camp partition. Does anyone know if it supports Miracast or not? I suspect not. I've already ran dxdiag which reports negative. Besides running the correct version of Windows, Miracast requires the correct hardware, which is where the Mac may fall short.

    Does anyone know for sure?

    Confirmed, Miracast works under bootcamp once 515 graphic driver from intel are installed.

    Now to get it operational under vmware... hmm

    I have iMac 27' Mid 2015 using Bootcamp Windows10
    and I couldn't manage to make it work.
    Tried to find the Intel driver you mention but I'm not sure which one to download exactly.

    It's not just a driver. There are a lot of hardware requirements that all have to be in place, so it really depends on the Mac. You need a supported Intel CPU, a supported Intel GPU, a supported Intel chipset, and a compatible Wi-Fi card.

    Here are the requirements:

    So right off the bat anything using AMD/Nvidia GPU instead of Intel is right out.

    I installed an oldest version of the Graphic card driver, now it works.
    Thank you anyway.
