WMI Explorer is a utility intended to provide the ability to browse and view WMI namespaces/classes/instances/properties in a single pane of view and is inspired by the PowerShell based WMI Explorer written by Marc.

As someone who works with Configuration Manager (SCCM), I spend a lot of time in wbemtest trying to find things which is very time consuming. I started this project with the intention to combine the features of currently available WMI Explorers, and to make it easier and quicker to find what you're looking for in WMI.


  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Full or .NET Framework 4.5.1

Known Issues

  • Asynchronous mode currently applies only for Class and Instance enumeration. Search and Query execution is synchronous.
  • Cached instance is not updated after clicking on ‘Refresh Object’.
  • root\directory\LDAP namespace is excluded from Search because enumeration of objects in this namespace can take a very long time and can even return "Quota Violation" error.
  • Scripting: PowerShell script execution through WMI Explorer requires PowerShell v2.
  • Method Execution: Methods requiring input parameters of Object or Reference data type are currently not supported.
