    Windows Firewall settings were exported to a .wfw file.

    The settings take effect if I manually import them through gpedit.msc and click to import the file.

    What I really want to have happen is a batch file executes the following: netsh advfirewall import c:\firewall.wfw
    For some reason using this command says it executes correctly with an OK... but the settings fail to take effect... this computer is not on a domain... it's odd that manually clicking through allows the file to make the settings take effect... but running the command does not...

    Can anyone assist? Is there a registry hack for this?
