During Intel PROSet Installation, choose WMI Provider to install.

Then, you can use WMI script to programmatically turn WiFi Radio On/Off.

Steps:

Connect to WMI using machine name and the desire namespace (in this case root\ cimv2)

Obtain a WiFi_NetworkAdapter class.

Start looping over all the instances of a WiFi_NetworkAdapter class

Call 'SetRadioState' method to set the software radio off.
