WMI Tools on Windows 8?
Posted 23 April 2012 - 08:27 AM
Mostly just the WMI Object Browser. Well this either does not work with Windows 8 or IE 10. While it is fine for me to manually connect to root\CIMV2, and I can see *some* classes, the values (even for those) do not appear. For example, while Win32_BaseBoard does not show up in the classes list (classes that can have instances) in the Object Browser, I can actually read data from it using a test program.
Are there any other WMI object tools that will work on Windows 8 or IE 10?

-WMI Code Creator
-PowerShell Scriptomatic or the classic Scriptomatic 2.0
-PowerShell WMI Explorer
Then again just typing
gwmi SomeClassNameHere | gmin PowerShell is often enough to get the infos you want without using a fancy tool (obviously no code generation there).

While I've never tried that one, I have to say that Sapien makes some pretty rad stuff. PrimalScript is a great little tool for those who still do VBScript. I haven't tried their PowerShell utils though.
Sapien has a freeware WMI Explorer. It's similar yet different from the WMI Explorer from Advanced Host Monitor (linked in Coffee's post)
