I have tried to get this work in C# and the event never gets caught. Here is my code:

        private ManagementEventWatcher _dockEvent;

        public Window1()
                string query = "SELECT * FROM __InstanceOperationEvent WITHIN 1 WHERE TargetInstance ISA \"Win32_SystemEnclosure\"";
                _dockEvent = new ManagementEventWatcher(query);
                _dockEvent.EventArrived += new EventArrivedEventHandler(dockEvent_EventArrived);
            catch (ManagementException ex)

 public void dockEvent_EventArrived(object sender, EventArrivedEventArgs e)
