I want to recover wireless profiles from a Windows 7 computer that no longer runs, I have located the data, c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces\, I copied to new computer but it does not see the profiles, is there a way to import or read them? I have dozens of profiles.

We actually tried to tackle a similar issue a couple of months ago.  To the best of our knowledge, that isn't possible.  You can read through the discussion here:

netsh wlan export profile key=clear
exports the profile with key

Netsh wlan add profile filename="c:\windows\profilename.xml"
imports the profile

Thanks Run5k, it does not appear to be possible to copy the folder over and import the profiles. The netsh commands do not recognize the profiles copied over from another machine, only 1's created on that machine.
