WMI problem

I got a problem that I have researched quite a bit on the web and found many others with the same problem but no fix has been found.

When I open System Information it says

"Can't Collect Information
Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software. Windows Management files may be moved or missing."

and I believe this issues also has to do with the following after running the network diagnostic which could be why my network doesn't work, peer to peer one XP machine one Win2000 machine. Neither can see each other.
 
===================
- Internet Explorer Web Proxy WMI Error FAILED
  Unable to connect to WMI namespace 'netdiagnostics'  
Computer Information
- Computer System WMI Error FAILED
  Unable to connect to WMI namespace 'win32_computersystem'  
- Operating System WMI Error FAILED
  Unable to connect to WMI namespace 'win32_operatingsystem'  
- Version WMI Error FAILED
  Unable to connect to WMI namespace 'win32_operatingsystem'  
Modems and Network Adapters
- Modems WMI Error FAILED
  Unable to connect to WMI namespace 'win32_potsmodem'  
- Network Adapters WMI Error FAILED
  Unable to connect to WMI namespace 'win32_networkadapterconfiguration'  
- Network Clients WMI Error FAILED
  Unable to connect to WMI namespace 'win32_networkclient'  
===================

Now before anybody suggests to make sure WMI service is running don't because it is running.

In the event viewer after running the System Information I get a DCOM error
 
===================
Event ID: 10000
NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE

"Unable to start a DCOM Server: {73E709EA-5D93-4B2E-BBB0-99B7938DA9E4}. The error:
"Access is denied. "

Happened while starting this command:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wbem\wmiprvse.exe -Embedding"

===================

Suggesting a permission problem on the C:\WINDOWS\System32\wbem\ folder or the wmiprvse.exe file

Have played around with the SYSTEM account permissions.

Added NETWORK SERVICES as one of the owners of this folder which doesn't bring up the "Can't Collect Information" error. However during the "Refreshing System Information" nothing happens. Same thing if I add my profile to the ownership.

I have replaced the wmiprvse.exe file

Can run wmiprvse.exe  -Embedding using start > run so the file seems to be ok. But even manually running it doesn't help because System Information wants to run it separately

System Restore didn't help

Reinstall of SP1a no help

SFC /scannow no help

I suspect doing a Repair install probably would fix this so please don't suggest doing it because I am looking to remedy without doing this.

No syware or viruses. Have checked.

Hi Spencer:

In reference to your problem with the DCOM Server {73E709EA-5D93-4B2E-BBB0-99B7938DA9E4}]

Here is information on the LaunchPermission Value:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/com/htm/reg_8j3i.asp

This may be key information. In the registry of two different systems on two different domains I have this key:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{73E709EA-5D93-4B2E-BBB0-99B7938DA9E4}]
@="Microsoft WMI Provider Subsystem Host"
"LaunchPermission"=hex:01,00,04,80,84,00,00,00,90,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,14,00,\
  00,00,02,00,70,00,05,00,00,00,00,03,14,00,01,00,00,00,01,01,00,00,00,00,00,\
  05,04,00,00,00,00,03,14,00,01,00,00,00,01,01,00,00,00,00,00,05,12,00,00,00,\

  00,01,02,00,00,00,00,00,05,20,00,00,00,20,02,00,00

Does your key compare to this key?

Spence, did you see this
http://www.devhood.com/messages/message_view-2.aspx?thread_id=93811
most importantly here


Well I cracked it ! ( with the help of this news forum: microsoft.public.windowsxp.wmi - and all due respect to the contributors )...

1. Firstly I created a .reg file using Notepad ( remove 'Word Wrap' ) containing the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\TRANSPORTS]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\TRANSPORTS\Address Resolution Modules]
"Stack Order"=hex(7):7b,00,41,00,31,00,30,00,34,00,34,00,38,00,30,00,31,00,2d,\

00,41,00,38,00,7d,00,00,00,00,00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\TRANSPORTS\Address Resolution Modules\{A1044801-8F7E-11D1-9E7C-00C04FC324A8}]
"Name"="WBEM Local Address Resolution Module"

"{A1044802-8F7E-11D1-9E7C-00C04FC324A8}"="WBEM Local Address Resolution Module"
"{A1044804-8F7E-11D1-9E7C-00C04FC324A8}"="Local Machine"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\TRANSPORTS\Network Transport Modules]
"Stack Order"=hex(7):7b,00,46,00,37,00,43,00,45,00,32,00,45,00,31,00,33,00,2d,\

00,38,00,43,00,39,00,30,00,2d,00,31,00,31,00,44,00,31,00,2d,00,39,00,45,00,\

37,00,42,00,2d,00,30,00,30,00,43,00,30,00,34,00,46,00,43,00,33,00,32,00,34,\
00,41,00,38,00,7d,00,00,00,00,00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\TRANSPORTS\Network Transport Modules\{F7CE2E13-8C90-11D1-9E7B-00C04FC324A8}]

"Independent"=dword:00000001
"Display Name"="{A2F7D6C1-8DCD-11D1-9E7C-00C04FC324A8}"

2. Then I stopped the WMI service.
3. Then I imported the .reg file into the registry.
4. Then I deleted the following folder: Windows/System32/WBEM/Repository
5. Then I started the WMI service ( set it to 'automatic' ).
6. System Information now works perfectly...

There must have been a corruption in the registry and I did notice one of the key parameters was not complete ( watch out for the 'word wrap' when creating .reg files )...

Cheers...

Ok the plot thickens. I am using XP Pro and I have XP home installed inside of VMWare now both have the pofile

C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService

However my XP Pro I can remove the ntuser.dat from tha folder meaning it isn't loaded into memory. But if I do that in the XP Home I get "File in use" error.

So the XP pro NetworkService profile isn't loading. And I am not sure how to force it to load.

>>So the XP pro NetworkService profile isn't loading<<

I'm thinking file system problems. How about something radical like
Partition Magic and resize the partition for the sake of letting PM run
over the cylinders. If that doesn't help maybe a step further and change
the file system twice. Change to FAT32 and then back to NTFS?

Do you know if the drive was formatted with a manufacturer's utility or not?

Hi CO,

Try these suggestions:

*** Problem Description ***
When going into Msinfo32 (System Information) you may get an error

Can't Collect Information
Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software. Windows Management
files may be moved or missing.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
*** Resolution ***

CAUSE
=====

This behavior can occur if files in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository
folder become corrupted.

RESOLUTION
==========

To resolve this behavior, delete and then recreate the files in the
%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder:

1. On the Desktop, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.

2. Under "Services and Applications", click Services, and then stop the Windows
   Management Instrumentation service.

3. Delete all of the files that are in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository
   folder.

4. Restart the computer. The files are recreated when the computer restarts.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

If that doesn't work

1. Reregister NETMAN.DLL

     Regsvr32 NETMAN.DLL

2. I assume U must have already gone thru this

3. Use
    SFC /purgecache

4. THe DCOM error seen also has access denied to a file  so  check permissions of
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\wmiprvse.exe.
    Compare this with  2000 box
    Add users with Read execute, list, read for the Windows dir as the problem
machine might not have this.
 Also, Give C:\ rights to All users

5. Also, ensure  all services are Log On As Local System and System account has Full Control on
all folders and files.



All the best

Alex

Thanks Alex

I have done the Repository thing several times. No luck
just know did the Regsvr32 NETMAN.DLL unfortunately no luck
the permission thing I have played with a lot still no luck
The MS article was I believe was the first thing I looked and but all those services are running.


Here is another peculiar problem that may be tied in to this. When I look under the Dependency tab of services I know have dependecies the list is empty yet the dependecies are listed in the registry.

This is a tough problem

The Network Connections service is running so no problem there an no problem with any programs other then System Information. This is more of annoyance other than the Network doesn't connect and all appears to be WMI problem.

No I don't run that command the calling program in this case System Information and running the network diagnostic from Help and Support Center. I am pretty sure it has to do with the NETWORK SERVICE. Somthing is funky with it.

Hi there,

I had the same problem as you did.
I solved it by importing the rootsec.inf template with the security configuration and analysis tool and applied it.
That means that some security setting within the local group policy (gpedit.msc tool) was preventing to run the WMI service under any user account.
I didn’t search for the setting that prevented the WMI service to start properly ( did it the easy way).

Good luck

Hi there,

You wrote
""Can't Collect Information
Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software. Windows Management files may be moved or missing."

I had the same problem when running the winmsd tool (msinfo32).
Winmsd is depending on the WMI service.
When I tried to access the wmi service tool from the compmgmt.msc tool I couldn’t get access to it, I get an access denied message.
I also could stop and restart the wmi service without any problems, but I could not configure the wmi settings.
So that is why I imported the rootsec.inf template with the security configuration and analysis tool and applied it.
After I did that I could run the winmsd tool without any problems.

CrazyOne,

I had the exact same error, but on Windows Server 2003.  The problem turned out to be the permissions on the root of the c: drive.  By default Everyone has read & execute permissions on just the root of the drive only ("this folder only" option).  Returning this security setting resolved the issue.  This situation also caused services started with the "network service" account to fail to start too.

Here is a Microsoft URL that contains the default security settings for XP (in the FAQ section):

mavaho solution seems the most plausible. It it hard to test to verify. However I did have a freind that had the same problem but mavaho solution didn't work. I think this thing is very odd because have researched the web and many who have this problem and very few fixes have actually worked.

tim_mcgue thanks for your input. In my case that wasn't the problem but I wish it had been because it would have saved me a lot headacaches. :)

Exact problems and errors in event log as CrazyOne, yet I have W2K3.  On the second full day of working on this, after trying everything on this thread and on some other ones on various sites with no luck, I did manage to repair WMI.  Although I think the profile copy did the trick a few things here might tie together so I will just list the steps I took.  Maybe someone else with this problem could just do the profile copy to verify that that was what did it.  Luckily I haven’t had to try this on an XP machine but I think the results will be the same.

1 On a DIFFERENT “Know Good” machine with the same OS enter SAFE MODE with NO networking and enable the local admin account to view SUPER HIDDEN files.

2. Copy all files and folders under C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService to a new folder that you will move to the affected machine however you see fit. (I restarted (normal mode) and then used the network to move the folder to the affected machine)
      (I recommend this machine be one that has not been tweaked too much) ((You could also EXPORT the Security configuration on this machine in order to import it on the affected machine))

3. Start the affected machine in safe mode without networking, log in as box Admin, enable view super hidden files by unchecking the box for “Tools>FolderOptions>View>Hide protected Operating System Files” and Copy the profile you’ve copied from the “known Good” into the c:docs and settings…. “NT Authority/Network Service” and “Network Service” profiles replacing the existing files (Just in case you should back up the two profiles before you overwrite them).

4. At the same time I replaced the security template with the one from the “know Good” machine START>RUN>GPEDIT.MSC>Windows Settings, Right Click Security settings and Import. (It’s a good Idea to Export (save) your current sec config before you do this)  

 After a restart WMI worked! I then tried to roll back some of the other things I tried in order to re-secure my system. I removed Everyone completely from the root of my drives (someone recommended adding it)
I also imported a LOCKED down security policy from MS
I also locked down my services.
Then I went to WMI control Security and removed Everyone from the root.
None of the above caused any problem.

What did cause a different error was when I removed “Local Service” and “Network Service” from the WMI control Security tab. It appears these need Enable account, Execute Method, and Provider write on the root and all sub folders. Putting them back made everything work again.

The seemingly unrelated events of not being able to load a user profile in the event log tipped me off to trying this. , Let me know if this works for anyone.
 
Good Luck!

Hi everyone,

I had exactly the same problem. I found the following information and solution over the Net. Here is a summary :


Symptoms :

- System Information (MSInfo32.exe) doesn't work (can't collect information)
- in Services MMC, you get the "failed to connect..." message when trying to see Services And Applications\WMI Control properties (right click)
- all above "classical" solutions don't work and have no effect (checking if Event Log service is on, recreating supposed corrupted files into

%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder, etc)


Cause :

installation of SP2 on Windows XP Pro changes some DCOM settings. After this, certains services using COM components (that is the case for "Windows  Management Instrumentation" (WinMgmt) WMI service) needs more privileges to run correctly.


Solution :


1. stop the "Windows Management Instrumentation" (WinMgmt) service


2. reset security setting on the implicated service (winmgmt) :


   Into the Command prompt dialog, type (on a single line) :

      sc sdset winmgmt "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)"


3. re-register certain components :


   Into the Command prompt dialog, type :
   
     regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll
     regsvr32.exe qmgrprxy.dll


4. restart the "Windows Management Instrumentation" (WinMgmt) service

 

Additional information :

The 2 and 4 steps of the solution works also for the problem of WindowUpdate.microsoft.com refusing to download manually MS patchs & fixes from a worksation.

In the following case, the  "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" (BITS) usually refuse to start again.  That makes the belowed solution :


1. reset security setting on the implicated services (Bits and Wuauserv) :


   Into the Command prompt dialog, type (each on one single line) :

      sc sdset bits     "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)"

      sc sdset wuauserv "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)"


2. restart the "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" (BITS) service

Just a small correction :

a) WMI Solution : step 3 is not necessary.
b) Windowsupdate solution :

- insert the step 3 of the WMI solution between step 1 and 2.
- add step 0 : stop bits and wuauserv services (Net stop Bits + Net Stop wuauserv at command prompt)
- restart them as last step (Net start Bits + Net start wuauserv at command prompt)

We can resume this in the following batch files :

a) WMI solution batch

Net Stop SharedAccess
Net Stop WinMgmt
sc sdset winmgmt "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)
Net Start WinMgmt
Net Start SharedAccess


b) WindowsUpdate solution batch

Net Stop Bits
Net Stop wuauserv
sc sdset Bits "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)
sc sdset Wuauserv "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)
regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll
regsvr32.exe qmgrprxy.dll
Net Start Bits
Net Start wuauserv

At last correction :

a) Windows Update solution & batch

Re-registration of *.dll is apparently not a necessity so the batch simplifies to :

Net Stop Bits
Net Stop wuauserv
sc sdset Bits "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)
sc sdset Wuauserv "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;PU)
Net Start Bits
Net Start wuauserv
