Programming WMI - The Visual Studio Server Explorer Way
Recently Niklas posted about a tool called WMI explorer. It's a nice and easy tool to use if you want to explore the WMI interfaces and their values on any computer, especially any non-development computer. However as far as development, debugging and using WMI goes, I've come to be more in favour of another way of doing WMI programming. Namely by using the Visual Studio .NET Server Explorer. There is a great article/blogpost at El Grego's BizTalk Blog highlighting the procedure. Granted, the post isn't recent, but the approach is still valid. The only update for the 2005 version of Visual Studio .NET is that the Management extensions isn't needed. The less custom code the better.
