Depends on how you want to use it, I guess.

"WmiSet is a collection of components for Windows Administration. You may download evaluation version of WmiSet for free. Evaluation version has no restrictions, but must not be used in commercial or production applications. For details on licence agreement please see licence.txt file that is included with installation program."

i need to use it on a company lan to collect all the information i can for auditing. But will use it on a weekly basis to keep a eye on what people are installing on the lan and that sort of thing, At the moment i do a registry connect to each pc then grab what i need, but now need a better list of hardware and stuff.

Dont think that will cover that?
