Cannot see Win32_product with WMI for W2K3 Server Evaluation Copy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot pick up a number of WMI classes with an evaluation copy of Windows 2003 Server I am running.  For example, I cannot see the Win32_product class in the namespace root\CIMV2 with the evaluation copy of Windows Server.   There are a number of WMI classes missing.

    I have experienced the same issue when I run virtual machines under Microsoft Virtual PC or VMware Player.  Is there something about the evaluation copy (and about the virtual hard drive machines) that would not permit me to see this class?  I can see it with Perfmon fine on a real machine running a license copy of Windows XP or Windows 2003 Server.


    Any ideas would be appreciated.
