HP BIOS Configuration Utility LAN/WLAN Switching Issue

HP Recommended
HP BIOS Configuration Utility
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am trying to set LAN/WLAN switching to be set as enabled with BCU and I am getting the below error message. I cannot seem to to the syntax correct no matter what I try? I know it will be something simple missing but can't see to work it what it is

/getvalue:"setting" Retrieves and displays the value of the given setting.


PS C:\software\bios> .\BiosConfigUtility.exe /getvalue:”LAN / WLAN Auto Switching"
<BIOSCONFIG Version="" Computername="***********" Date="2018/03/14" Time="15:46:18" UTC="0">
<SETTING changeStatus="pass" name = "LAN / WLAN Auto Switching" returnCode="0">
<ERROR msg="Get BIOS configuration failed, unable to open output file" />
<Information msg="BCU return value" real="0" translated="0" />



PS C:\software\bios> .\BiosConfigUtility.exe /setvalue:”LAN / WLAN Auto Switching","*Enabled"
<BIOSCONFIG Version="" Computername=""***********" Date="2018/03/14" Time="15:44:58" UTC="0">
<SETTING changeStatus="fail" name="LAN / WLAN Auto Switching" returnCode="4">
<ERROR msg="An operation failed" />
<ERROR msg="BCU return value" real="4" translated="4" />

Please make sure you are using the last HP BCU 


If already using it, suggest to use the setconfig as setvalue is failing 

First run a BiosConfigUtility.exe getconfig:biosetup.txt  

to get the bios config in text file. edit the value you want to change and save the text file 


then perform a setconfig with the text file 

BiosConfigUtility.exe getconfig:biosetup.txt
