    Why do you not just add it in via group policy.

    @PeterG. ZwLANCfg v2.1 doesn't support Windows 7 (for that you need v3.1 which isn't free). Instead I would try the Vista version of Aruba's WifiCfg (located in the "WzcAutoProvision\Components\WifiCfg\bin\Relea se" folder once you unzip it).

    SUCCESS ! I have done it with the built in netsh command however i exported the key in plain text, here is the command to export:

    netsh wlan export profile name="MyProfileName" folder=c:\Temp interface="Wireless Network Connection" key=clear
    and to import using mdt:

    netsh wlan add profile filename = "PATH TO XML" user=all
    Thanks for all your help

    What we did was use the XP Wireless Network Wizard (yes it works on 7), create the settings; create a msi package to dump it at the root of C: and then run the setupsnk as part of our laptop build. You could autoit the OK to add wireless network - but I quite like seeing the prompt to know the build has completed ok

    EDIT: See my blog for the scripts used to autorun at first boot after build. Applies to SCCM, but will equally work under MDT
