WMI SDK for windows XP

I would like to download WMI SDK to WIndows XP. However, WDI SDK is only available to windows 2000 and early. Microsoft .NET has some WMI SDK facility.

If I do not want to use .NET, is there any workaround for me to have WMI SDK functions? To be more specific, I can not find "wbemcli.h" in Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 and Microsoft SDK. It is in WMI SDK for windows which I can not download for XP. How can I get it for Windows XP?

Thanks.

I have downloaded the WMI SDK. Now my program compiled and is working. However, there is still one issue with it:

I am implementing a NT service which calls an executable (cm.exe). Inside cm.exe, it creates another process (rec.exe). When I stop the service from Service Control Manager(SCM), cm.exe stops. I can manually end the process rec.exe from SCM in windows XP (it is under system account). However, in Windows 2000, it can not be stopped. I have to reboot to stop rec.exe.

I want to change my program such that when cm.exe is killed, its created process rec.exe is stopped as well. I used the following functions in my program. But rec.exe is not stopped when cm.exe is stopped. Any other way? Thanks.  --A.

HANDLE pid;
  void (signal (WM_CHAR,endprog));
  void (signal (WM_QUIT,endprog));
  void (signal (SIGTERM,endprog));
  void (signal (SIGABRT,endprog));
  void (signal (SIGSEGV,endprog));

void endprog (int signal_num)
{
      printf("Got signal %d\n",signal_num);
      if (pid) {
            /* Shut down rec.exe process */
            TerminateProcess(pid, 0);  
            pid = 0;
      }
}
