Export and import wireless network keys with the new version of WirelessKeyView

The new version of WirelessKeyView (v1.50) allows you to easily select one or more wireless keys stored on your computer, export them into a simple text file, and then import these wireless keys into another computer.

This feature might be very useful if you have a large amount of wireless network keys and you want to move them into another computer, without the need of typing every key separately.

Before you start using this feature, you should be aware that there are some problems/limitations:

  • The import feature only works on Windows XP with Service Pack 3 or later, including Windows 7, Windows 2008, and Windows Vista. You cannot use the import feature on Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2. As opposed to the import feature, the export feature works on any system, including Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2.
  • The import feature on Windows XP/SP3 is very slow, and WirelessKeyView may temporary hang during the import process.
  • The wireless keys stored inside the export file are not encrypted, so if you're concerned about the security of your network, you should keep this file in a place where unauthorized users cannot read it, or simply delete it after the import process is finished.
  • The import feature only works with a text file created with the 'Export Selected Items' option. You cannot use the import feature with the files created by the 'Save Selected Items' option.
  • Your wireless network adapter must be active when using the import feature. If you have a USB wireless adapter, you must plug it before you start the import process.
  • If you have multiple wireless network adapters, a separated key entry will be added for each adapter.
