How do I pass credentials to remote machine using WMI in VB.NET

I am using the fiollowing code to enumerate users on a remote machine.  I got the code from this site.

In order to run the query on the remote machine, I have to pass it my username and password or I'll get access denied.

Does anyone know the syntax for passing the username & password?

Here is the code:
Private Sub EnumerateLocalAccounts(ByRef machineName As String)

      Dim pathMachine As New Management.ManagementPath("\\" & machineName & "\root\cimv2")
      Dim scopeRemoteMachine As New Management.ManagementScope(pathMachine)
      Dim queryAccounts As New Management.ObjectQuery( "SELECT * FROM Win32_Account")

      Dim searcherAccounts As New Management.ManagementObjectSearcher(scopeRemoteMachine, queryAccounts)

      Dim objectAccount As Management.ManagementObject

      For Each objectAccount In searcherAccounts.Get

         Debug.WriteLine(objectAccount("Name"))

      Next

   End Sub

Thanks.

Use the ConnectionOptions class:

Imports System.Management

...

  Private Sub EnumerateLocalAccounts(ByVal machineName As String)

    Dim pathMachine As New ManagementPath("\\" & machineName & "\root\cimv2")
    Dim options As New ConnectionOptions
    options.Username = "user"
    options.Password = "password"

    Dim scopeRemoteMachine As New ManagementScope(pathMachine, options)
    Dim queryAccounts As New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Account")

    Dim searcherAccounts As New ManagementObjectSearcher(scopeRemoteMachine, queryAccounts)

    Dim objectAccount As ManagementObject

    For Each objectAccount In searcherAccounts.Get

      Debug.WriteLine(objectAccount("Name"))

    Next

  End Sub
