XP system requirements--this one puzzles me RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm reading the SteadyState handbook, and it says "Windows Scripting and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) must be working." I don't even know what these are, let alone whether or not they are working correctly! Is this something  I really have to worry about?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    WMI is enabled by default, so it should be fine.

  • Thanks for Rob's input.

    EtheLibrarian, if you want to check WMI status, you can go to Start - Run - Services.msc - Windows Management Instrumentation and check if it is started.
