So right now the function only adds the exception so it has acces to Public networks,I need it to have access to the Home/Work(private) network.

HRESULT WindowsFirewallAddApp(
            IN INetFwProfile* fwProfile,
            IN const wchar_t* fwProcessImageFileName,
            IN const wchar_t* fwName
            )
{
    HRESULT hr = S_OK;
    BOOL fwAppEnabled;
    BSTR fwBstrName = NULL;
    BSTR fwBstrProcessImageFileName = NULL;
    INetFwAuthorizedApplication* fwApp = NULL;
    INetFwAuthorizedApplications* fwApps = NULL;

    _ASSERT(fwProfile != NULL);
    _ASSERT(fwProcessImageFileName != NULL);
    _ASSERT(fwName != NULL);

    // First check to see if the application is already authorized.
    hr = WindowsFirewallAppIsEnabled(
            fwProfile,
            fwProcessImageFileName,
            &fwAppEnabled
            );
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        printf("WindowsFirewallAppIsEnabled failed: 0x%08lx\n", hr);
        goto error;
    }

    // Only add the application if it isn't already authorized.
    if (!fwAppEnabled)
    {
        // Retrieve the authorized application collection.
        hr = fwProfile->get_AuthorizedApplications(&fwApps);
        if (FAILED(hr))
        {
            printf("get_AuthorizedApplications failed: 0x%08lx\n", hr);
            goto error;
        }

        // Create an instance of an authorized application.
        hr = CoCreateInstance(

                __uuidof(INetFwAuthorizedApplication),

        fwBstrProcessImageFileName = SysAllocString(fwProcessImageFileName);
        if (fwBstrProcessImageFileName == NULL)
