Transfer Saved Wifi profiles to new laptop

I have about 100+ stored Wifi profiles with passphrases on my current laptop. Each time I got to a hotspot for the second time, my laptop connects automatically.

I bought a new laptop. How can I transfer all of these Wifi profiles to the new laptop?

They are in the registry. 100 profiles seems like a lot but I always just remake mine.

NETSH WLAN /?  to see how the EXPORT command works. You can Export to an XML file.

Then use ADD to add the profiles to the new computer.

I was able to save the 100 profiles into 100 XML files. But I couldnt figure out how to add them to the new computer. The Add button in "Manager Wireless Networks" in Win 7 only lets you manually add one network at a time by typing in the information.

You do have to import one at a time (big deficiency in the way Microsoft did this), but the details should be part of the XML file.
