Hi,
   at the end of a image, i am running netsh wlan add profile filename="C:\wireless.xml"  to import our company wireless profile.  but sometimes the profile just disappears without any errors.  has anyone seen this before?

sometimes it disappears after a reboot, and sometimes it disappears a few days later.


Thanks for any help

I doubt this would be the case, since you say right there that you just finished installing (imaging) the os, but is there any chance that permissions for any networking components (or any folders that networking components are contained in) have been messed with on this image? This is one cause of a disappearing wireless profile.
