  1. Hello List!

    I searched a way, to deploy my WLAN settings for XP Clients. After
    search this Group i found this thread who defines how we can do a auto
    setup the Wireless Settings:

    Now i try to setup with the wizard the WPA-Radius, but it has no option
    for it. After searching the web, i found the spec for the Wsetting.wfc file:

    For XP:

    For Vista:

    Now i followed the Definitions and build the follow file:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <configAuthor>Microsoft Wireless Network Setup Wizard</configAuthor>

    But the problem is, that XP+SP2 don't read/interpret the file correctly.
    I get only the Error Message:

    Es wurden keine Informationen gefunden, die zum Einrichten des Netzwerks
    erforderlich sind bzw. die Informationen sind nicht verwendbar. Führen
    Sie den Assistenten erneut auf dem ursprünglichen Computer aus.

    (Sorry - thats the Original German Error Message - I try to translate)

    No Information found, for Setup the Network btw. the information are not
    useful. ......

    In the Documentation is the XML Schema for this file. I validated this
    file against the schema and found no error.

    My next try was with the same usb stick and the same files on a Vista
    Notebook. Result: All ok: The files created my Wireless Network
    Connection (But some tasks are left: Cert, and some check boxes - @ MS:
    this stuff should also integrated!!)

    My Result: There is no way, to make a silent Wireless Setup with RADUIS
    for Users with don't have any know how!

  3. yes. i have a ms ias server with ad who runnng radius.

    But the problem is, that some users have a own notebook from home and
    will connect to the network.

    But some user dont have knowlege about windows and cant run setup this

    So i search a way, to make a Setup for it, that the user can set up the
    radius connection over exe/script/some other tool.

    But i cant find any solution for it!
