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?
