Hi Experts out there!!
I am trying to access the network adapters using WMI. I am trying with the code below. I get access denied on the "scope.connect"-line.  Any ideas? I am creating a Windows application
Dim mgmtOptions As New ConnectionOptions
        mgmtOptions.Impersonation = ImpersonationLevel.Impersonate
        mgmtOptions.Authentication = AuthenticationLevel.Connect
        Dim scope = New ManagementScope("\\" + RemotePC + "\root\cimV2", mgmtOptions)
        Dim QueryNIC As ObjectQuery
        QueryNIC = New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapter")
        Dim NICSearcher As New ManagementObjectSearcher(scope, QueryNIC)
        Dim Queried As ManagementObject
        For Each Queried In NICSearcher.Get()

Open in new window
