We are trying t install Windows WMI Installer PRovider component using SYSOCMGR.exe by running the below command but it is giving the error "The Application could not be initialised".

sysocmgr /i:%windir%\inf\sysoc.inf /u:WMIIP.txt /r /q

The file WMIIP.txt contains
==============
[Components]
WBEMMSI = ON
==============

AlsoI need to configure the same in 50 servers. Is there a way to achieve that remotely.

You use a answer file that has an ini file format with a
Components section like an unattend.txt for example, to add all the
Management and Monitoring tools it would look like this

-->8
[Components]
Netoc=On
WbemMSI=1

[NetOptionalComponents]
NetCMAK=1
NetCPS=1
NetMonTools=1
SNMP=1
WBEMSNMP=1

-->8
Then follow this article about how to call it. These references were taken
from the ref.chm in the deploy.cab on the Windows Server CD

This was done by copying the WMIIP.txt file to the c: and providing full path in the command
