MC55A - Needs reg or CAB to set network settings

MC55
Flashed with BSP34
Referring to the following settings...
Start > Settings > Connetions > Connetions > Advanced > Select Networks
Two drop downs in "Network Management" are initially "My ISP" and "My Work Network", respectively.

Manually changed both to "My ISP", cold booted device, and checked setting again to see they both persisted and kept the "My ISP" value.
This shows that manually setting these will persist normally.

However, I wanted to try and capture registry changes to have them set to "My Work Network"
So i set both to "My ISP", click OK to save the change.
Than took baseline with RemCapture v1.9
Changed both dropdowns to "My Work Network"
Took difference with RemCapture.
Saved registry file and deployed it to device (and manuually merged it by clicking on it)
I then cold booted device....
when i returned to settings, the top dropdown was "My ISP" and the bottom was "My Work Network", even though my registry should have set both of them to "My Work Network"

For whatever reason these dropdowns do not play nice with registry changes.  Does anyione have any insight as to why, and more importantly, a solution? I need some automated means of settings these besides manually clicking on the OS interface to set them.

The right way to to this sort

The right way to to this sort of things is via XML provisioning.
I once wrote (inspired on another one written by Ignacio) an utility which "installs" the xml file specified on the command line, optionally deleting it after successful installtion.
I posted it somewhere in DevCentral, its name is XMLInstaller.zip.

Hi Justin, Unfortunately

Hi Justin,

Unfortunately reg change is not the best way to make these kind of changes.
I'm adding a document for XML provisioning.

Briefly
create/modify XML file
make it xxx.cpf by makecab.exe via command prompt.
rename it as xxx.cab then run

I hope it will help.

I tired the XML method as

I tired the XML method as well, agreeing it would be the best way to go.  No matter what I did, I still got the My work/connection notification bubble after a restore boot.

I have attached the kit I used to may the "My Work" XML cab.  (It does change the settings) and the reg file I now use in place of this.

This was on WM6.5.3

is it also possible to use

is it also possible to use the XML provisioning to enable the radio on a WM6.5.3 device?

I have been trying to figure out a way to do this via RemCapture to find the right reg-entries but not having any luck.

thanks,
afshin

Afshin, The REG key should

Afshin,

The REG key should enable the Fusion radio:

;Enable Fusion radio ON by default - may be turned off by default on some devices.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\WLAN]

;  D0 - Full on
;  D4 - Off
;
;  InitialState is a dword represent CEDEVICE_POWER_STATE, valid values
;  are: 0 - D0, 4 - D4.

 "InitialState"=dword:0

You can have as many APN's as

You can have as many APN's as you like - add or delete.

You can also combine all the settings into one XML file.
