I'm trying to paste WMI code from Code Creator to a new group policy WMI filter but getting error.

The error is, "A syntax error occurred trying to evaluate a query string".

With this code I want to filter for a machine that has the host name "guid-03" so that I can prevent a policy from being applied. The machine is a thin client that doesn't show up in AD so I need to use WMI filtering to apply the GP.

thanks
strComputer = "." 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2") 
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery( _
    "SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE DNSHostName = 'guid-03'",,48) 
For Each objItem in colItems 
    Wscript.Echo "-----------------------------------"
    Wscript.Echo "Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration instance"
    Wscript.Echo "-----------------------------------"
    Wscript.Echo "DNSHostName: " & objItem.DNSHostName
Next

You just need the one line:
SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE DNSHostName = 'guid-03'
