Hello All,

I can't see what I'm doing wrong with this one.  If I run the following command, I get a list of applications that are on my local pc (works great).

get-wmiobject -class Win32_Product | Select-Object Name

If I try to run the command against a remote computer as follows:

get-wmiobject -class Win32_Product -ComputerName fs01 | Select-Object name

I get the following "invalid class" message:

Invalid class
At :line:2 char:14
+       get-wmiobject <<<<  -class Win32_Product -ComputerName fs01 | Select-Object name

What am I doing wrong?
