Hide SSID on Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter?

I have an access point created using the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter (using an Alfa 1w usb wifi adapter and connectify.me) and I am wondering if it is possible to not broadcast the SSID? How would I go about doing that?

Usually you would turn off the SSID broadcast using the routers set up page somewhere in the wireless connection settings. Connectify may have a setting for this also but I havn't found it yet.
