Re-registering the WMI components (Ref WMI FAQ)

The .DLL and .EXE files used by WMI are located in %windir%system32wbem. You might need to re-register all the .DLL and .EXE files in this directory. If you are running a 64-bit system you might also need to check for .DLLs and .EXE files in %windir%sysWOW64wbem.
To re-register the WMI components, run the following commands at the command prompt:

  • cd /d %windir%system32wbem
  • for %i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i
  • for %i in (*.exe) do %i /RegServer
