Hosted Network not supported

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-AU111TX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am unable to create a WiFi Hotspot on my laptop. The following is the result I got when I ran 

netsh wlan show drivers

on Command Prompt as an administrator. I cannot find Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter on Device Manager even after selecting "Show Hidden Devices". Thanks in advance!
