Coretech WMI and PowerShell Browser

I´m happy to announce our first version of WMI and PowerShell Explorer tool. The main reason why I did this tool is to simplify my own work and hopefully, it will help others also who are working with Configuration Manager.


· Coretech WMI and PowerShell Explorer is a freeware tool with two main feature sets.

· A powerful WMI tool that allows you to connect to and work with WMI locally and remotely. With the tool you can browse WMI namespaces, classes, methods, properties and class instances. Besides being a WMI browser the Coretech WMI and PowerShell Explorer allows also to export query results and namespace methods.

· A PowerShell Explorer tool that allows you to import built-in or custom PowerShell modules to browse help topics. Besides assisting you with the built-in/online help, the tool is cloud integrated with all the System Center Configuration Manager PowerShell examples found on

    If I install the tool on a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine, I get the error ‘Please install Windows Management Framework 3.0’, but this is not applicable to W2K12R2. Can you make it compatible? 🙂

  8. […] We have several ways to find out the folder unique ID, for example we can run the ConfigMgr Admin console in developer mode or we can use a WMI tool. There are different WMI tools that you can find from the internet or you can simple use the WBEMTEST tool also which is already built-in in Windows. In this case I´m using our Coretech WMI and PowerShell Explorer tool. […]

    using powershell to extract the assignment schedule for a deployment? I’m trying to build a script to grab the mandatory assignment schedule for a legacy (package) deployment and then modify it (adding 1 day)… I can’t seem to find the Cmdlet in Powershell for grabbing this info… do you have any thoughts?
