Export Wi-Fi Profiles

Exporting Wi-Fi profiles from a device can be useful to use during the deployment of new notebooks or tablets.  This process is outlined in detail from Microsoft https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755301%28v=ws.10%29.aspx


This K2000 Deployment Workbench tool, export_wifi_profiles,' will identify the networks connected on your device and display their names in a list to be selected for export.  Use the "Select/Deselect All" checkbox to tick or untick all the boxes.  Click the Export Profiles button to begin the process.  After a few seconds, a message box will appear with instructions on how to use the file that is produced.  The file, 'deploy_wifi_profiles.zip' will automatically be saved to the desktop, unless the file already exists in which case it will ask to browse to a new location.  If the same location is chosen, the original will be overwritten. This ZIP file will include all of your exported profiles and the executable needed to deploy the wireless profiles.

1.     Login to the K2000
