netsh wlan add profile commands to deploy the same wirless config which uses
WEP keys with open authentication to many laptops. Issue is that after I
added the profile to a new latop using netsh add profile from .xml file,
windows vista pops up a message, it says to type the wep key. Why cant it
import from the xml file. Am I doing a wrong precedure. Please give

When you export your configuration, the WEP key is encrypted. When you upload the configuration, it taked the encrypted key as the unencrypted key and you end up with a different key.

This is standard security behavior. You need to know the key yourself in order to perfor the config transfer.
