If you're unable to delete a connection profile, then that might be due to policies that have been configured by a network administrator. Also, you may need to configure additional capabilities in order to delete certain types of connection profiles. For Wi-Fi connection profiles, the wiFiControl capability is needed. Calling WiFiAdapter.RequestAccessAsync prior to attempting to delete any Wi-Fi connection profiles may allow additional connection profiles to be deleted.
