    Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) - (Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista)


    Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)

    Shortcut: Go to the WMI table containing the links

    Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
    Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is the infrastructure for management data and operations on Windows-based operating systems.

    You will find it provides a treasure trove of information regarding you system's hardware configuration and information, Windows OS information and installed software.


    Each of the 71 WMI commands is numbered and listed below in the table. Please note that not all will return data, i.e., some are antiquated; others are not found on your system, e.g., "tapedrive" and therefore will return a value of "zero (0) instances" (HTML output) or in the case of text file output - no information (blank Notepad).

    I decided to provide two means of output - HTML and TEXT. I did this because it has been my experience with hundreds of thousands of Sysnative BSOD File Collection App (which does contain a few WMI commands, including one HTML output for RAM info) output files, that some systems for whatever reason cannot generate the HTML output, but can generate the Text output. For example, it is not uncommon for me to find the RAM HTML output to be zero (empty). That same system is usually always able to generate the same WMI command - text output. The HTML output is much easier to read than the text output.

    The last two columns contain two links each - one for batch script download; the other for a sample of the output. Try both - see which one you prefer.

    After downloading and depending on browser settings, you'll have options to RUN the batch script; SAVE the batch script, or CANCEL.
