If you ever use WMI Diag script (The WMI Diagnosis Utility — Version 2.0) on a non-English version of Windows (i.e. Spanish, French, Italian, German…), you will get tons of errors when the script checks out default permissions on WMI namespaces or DCOM components related to WMI, for instance.
The cause is simple: the script checks permissions for groups of users which name is language-dependant.
If we use WMI Diag in i.e. a Spanish Windows, we will have to edit the script and replace:
– “BUILTIN\Administrators” with “BUILTIN\Administradores”,
– “Everyone” with “Todos”,
– “NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE” with “NT AUTHORITY\Servicio de red”,
– “NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE” with “NT AUTHORITY\SERVICIO LOCAL”,
– “NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users” with “NT AUTHORITY\Usuarios autentificados”,
Now you can run the script and find out if your WMI is really broken.
I hope this helps.
