    Get-WmiObject : Generic failure


    I think this problem was mentioned before but got the question in my blog
    can not find answer :
    get-WmiObject errors on win32_product with a Get-WmiObject : Generic failure

    e.g.

    PoSH> get-wmiobject win32_product


    IdentifyingNumber : {91057632-CA70-413C-B628-2D3CDBBB906B}
    Name : Macromedia Flash Player 8 Plugin
    Vendor : Macromedia
    Version : 8.0.22.0
    Caption : Macromedia Flash Player 8 Plugin

    Get-WmiObject : Generic failure
    At line:1 char:14
    + get-wmiobject <<<< win32_product

    gr /\/\o\/\/

    Yes by searching "Get-WmiObject : Generic failure"
    at group:microsoft.public.windows.powershell it
    seems to have troubles.

    Perhaps
