Application Instrumentation with WMI Slides and Downloads

by Nick Friday, August 27, 2010 3:25 PM

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came to the Lake County .NET User's Group meeting in Grayslake last night. I had a great time, and I hope everyone came away excited to use an 8+ year old technology they probably never heard of ;-). As promised, here are the slides, and the sample code from last night:

Here are a few notes on the sample code:

  • The \Resources directory contains many of the downloads that I talked about during the presentation, including the MMC 3.0 download if you're running Windows XP.
  • Before attempting to register the MMC Snap-In, be sure to run mmcperf.exe from the command prompt. This registers required libraries into the GAC.
  • The "Source" project is a WPF version of the project from last night. It's is functionally the same, and the tasks and the WMI piece is identical, it's just running in a different project harness.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions, and hopefully I'll have an opportunity to speak with all of you again.
