SETNET32 automatically maintain the SQLHOSTS file

Behaviour in SDK 4.1Fc1 and TC1 is changed . In previous version of windows SDK connectivity details were taken from registry ( setnet32 updates registry) but in SDK 4.10 Fc1/TC1 there is need to setup sqlhosts file apart from setting setnet32 . We also need to configure sqlhosts file which is additional step and creates confusion and issues with existing application support.

So the requirement is to create sqlhosts file automatically and update it when user configures setnet32 .
