netsh profile setup

at my work we have a secured hidden wireless network and a public wireless network - to access my file and outlook I need to use the secured network. whoever setup the secured wireless made it so that it uses your windows credentials. this person made a batch file that uses an xml file to auto configure the profile. I looked at the batch file, and the command is

netsh wlan add profile filename=pathtoxmlfile\xmlfile.xml

when I run this I get this error

Profile format error 0x80420011:
The network connection profile is corrupted.

I have been googleing this and have narrowed the problem to the xml file. I also found a suggestion to export the profile from a working pc, then use the same command but use the exported xml file. I tried that and still get the error
any ideas on how to fix the xml file?

first need admin right to do it which I assumed you are already doing so...

Overall, it will be good (avoid typo etc) to export from the pre-configured profile of this test machine via GUI policy editor. Also to avoid "compatibility" when importing to other machines, will need to export plain key in that XML (note - need admin right as well to export key which need to be plain as there is machine-specific encryption on password) ....some forum saying so...

actually I was also looking at the error code but not much info as well on this 802.1x error - EAP_E_EAPHOST_METHOD_NOT_INSTALLED - 0x80420011
(e.g. The requested EAP method is not installed.)

another option is using wifi api - can check out
