Hello!

I spent the last 2 days figuring out how to install Huawei share (pc manager) on a Non-Huawei laptop, and I encountered a lot of outdated informations or outdated files, missing download links, bugs, but I finally made it to work. I hope this post will save others some time.

THIS IS NOT MY WORK. I just spent a lot of time struggling on chinese sites to understand how this app work, instructions were in chinese.
This is Huawei PC Manager v11, it should work for AMD CPU ( but i didn't tested it ).
Your PC needs bluetooth and wifi (you can use it through cable without bt & wifi) & NFC Tag works too.

Download link for zip file: https://www.mediafire.com/file/mgd2f3hh3bf9d9u/PCManagerHuawei.rar/file

1. Extract the zip and open PCManagerMgr.exe as administrator.

2. Set your PC time to May 12, 2020. *THIS IS IMPORTANT*

3. In PCManagerMgr, you should insert code : 1DBDFC If you didn't set May 12, 2020 it doesn't work.

Black arrow - > It's not PcManager V10. it's v11 but I couldn't change the program so, i rename the installer from v11 to v10 to match our program.
Yellow thing - > I just tried to blur my pc's serial number but you can get it anyway by scanning the QR code that I forgot to blur, anyway, I won't blur further.
Green arrows - > You won't have the same status, mine is already installed and i'm running it right now, that's why.
Make everything the same as in photo and you're good to go, press install. The installer should open.


After the installation, you can launch PC Manager from desktop shortcut, go to phone on left, and click connect.

Follow the red arrow in the above picture and click that half QR code.
You will get a bigger QR Code, picture 2 lines below.
Now you need to enable Huawei Share, BT and maybe NFC on your Huawei phone. (i really don't know if it's mandatory to have nfc on).

Scan this QR code using Huawei's browser, it won't work with any other QR Scanner. You need to set Huawei's Browser as default browser. Some connection requests should appear and click allow.

IF You scan this QR Code and all you get is this, and nothing happens:
Screenshot_20210524_231616_com.huawei.browser.jpg

Then you need to go to settings on your phone -> apps -> apps -> search for browser -> and in the upper right corner you have 3 dots, with an "uninstall updates" option. You need to uninstall updates, i think they patched this with some update. Never update browser app.
then you can try again to scan QR Code, it should work now.

If you have an NFC Tag and want to use it, You need to install that chinese .apk file on your phone, you have it in the zip file you downloaded.
This chinese named apk file will install Huawei Share OneHop app. With this app you need to scan the QR Code from PCManagerMgr, it's the QR Code from the first picture of this post, and after you scan it, it will ask you to place the NFC module (your phone, near the cameras on p40 pro) against the NFC Tag you want to use. It should be done and good to go. It worked for me in the first try.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask here.
It's my first post, I'm not good at this. This is not my work, I just wanted to help people since there isn't an updated post.
Also my english is not so good but it's better than chinese.

THANK YOU, this is the most understandable and complete tutorial about this. i finally get it connected after days of trying before i read this tutorial.
But now i have a problem, the multi screen cant show anything. i can control the phone (3 button at the bottom and clicks is registered) but the picture didnt show up just stuck like this. i tried diff version of pc manager and set nvidia control panel etc, but nothing works. if anybody know how (or just any idea that i can try) to resolve this, i will appreciate it. thank you

Hi,

thank you for the file and the guide. It's been really helpful. Do you have any tips on how to connect over Wi-Fi?

My problem is that at certain point I have de-installed the Huawei Browser from my phone and now I can only download it via the App Gallery (where I get the screenshot that you've uploaded). Should I look on APK mirror or similar for an older version, and if there is one available, which one would you recommend?

Otherwise, the phone connects and works via USB cable

Thanks for sharing this helpful trick.
===
At first I tried to connect my phone by USB, and it worked. However, OneHop (NFC Tag) always fails.
Then I tried to connect by Scan the QR Code (you need to Uninstall browser Updates first), yes it worked too. After that, suddenly my OneHop managed to work perfectly.

I can conclude that, in order to use OneHop, PC Manager has to get authenticated for the first time (because when connecting by OneHop it always shows an error that authentication failed). Maybe the OneHop feature has a bug or something that makes it not work properly.
Then by connecting by QR Code, the PC Manager has received authentication, so that the OneHop feature can work properly because it already authenticated.

You can buy a Programmable NFC Tag Sticker, it's cost less than $1/pc in my local store.
Aliexpress (for reference only)

But what type of nfc tag do I need? And how to make that nfc tag work as Huawei share original tag?
You need a Programmable NFC Tag like the product in Aliexpress I posted.

How it work? (as far as I know)
The OneHop App (Chinese App) write a code (or maybe an URL Address) into the NFC Tag.
The NFC Tag will trigger the PC Manager and make a connection once it tapped.

I tried scan the Barcode in PC Manager, and I got this address: (I replaced some text with XXXX)

Code:
https://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/laptopsassistant/v2applinks/?s=XXXX&version=4.0.0.2&devid=XXXX&random=XXXX&modeltype=5&modelsubtype=0&s2=XXXX

I think the address is unique & static for every PC, because I can make a connection by enter this address in browser without scan the barcode anymore.
And maybe the mechanisme is the same as the (configured) NFC tag do, NFC Tag will open the same URL address once it tapped.

I believe the original Huawei Share do the same way.

(ps: I can't check what code in my configured NFC Tag, everytime I tap the tag by NFC Reader App it just not work, and my phone immediatly open the Connection (to PCManager) Popup. Using another non-Huawei NFC phone should be work I think)

Okay I see, thank you very much for explanation, last question, there is a lot of types of nfc tag, commonly ntag213, ntag215, is that matter what nfc tag I will use? What type you have been using to make that pcmanager work?

I need some help. This method already worked for me with the version given, but I would like to install Huawei PC Manager version 11.1.1.97 on my PC, since it is the latest version of this application and I would love to be able to connect the tablet that I will buy in a couple of months.
Is there a way to update the software or directly install the most up-to-date version?

    Latest version is not working on my Huawei P40 Pro+, only working version is PCManager11.0.8.87(C233).exe (https://mega.nz/file/AU4n2QaQ#vnMHlCkuz2lABmtjPkMld83gij_0u4uEhzpLVjAhci0)

    You can make the latest version Work, Just backup version.dll in huawei installer folder and restore after install the latest one
