It works on my local machine via button1, however i can't figure out the string i need to send and recieve.


function _VarToStr(const V: variant): string;
    var
    Vt: integer;
    begin
    Vt := VarType(V);
        case Vt of
          varSmallint,
          varInteger  : Result := IntToStr(integer(V));
          varSingle,
          varDouble,
          varCurrency : Result := FloatToStr(Double(V));
          varDate     : Result := VarToStr(V);
          varOleStr   : Result := WideString(V);
          varBoolean  : Result := VarToStr(V);
          varVariant  : Result := VarToStr(Variant(V));
          varByte     : Result := char(byte(V));
          varString   : Result := String(V);
          varArray    : Result := VarArrayToStr(Variant(V));
        end;
    end;

var
i : integer;
begin
    Result := '[';
     if (VarType(vArray) and VarArray)=0 then
       Result := _VarToStr(vArray)
    else
    for i := VarArrayLowBound(vArray, 1) to VarArrayHighBound(vArray, 1) do
     if i=VarArrayLowBound(vArray, 1)  then
      Result := Result+_VarToStr(vArray[i])
     else
      Result := Result+'|'+_VarToStr(vArray[i]);

    Result:=Result+']';
end;

function VarStrNull(const V:OleVariant):string; //avoid problems with null strings
begin
  Result:='';
  if not VarIsNull(V) then
  begin
    if VarIsArray(V) then
       Result:=VarArrayToStr(V)
    else
    Result:=VarToStr(V);
  end;
end;


function GetWMIObject(const objectName: String): IDispatch; //create the Wmi instance
var
  chEaten: Integer;
  BindCtx: IBindCtx;
  Moniker: IMoniker;
begin
  OleCheck(CreateBindCtx(0, bindCtx));
  OleCheck(MkParseDisplayName(BindCtx, StringToOleStr(objectName), chEaten, Moniker));
  OleCheck(Moniker.BindToObject(BindCtx, nil, IDispatch, Result));
end;



procedure  GetAntiVirusProductInfo;
var
 objWMIService : OLEVariant;
 colItems      : OLEVariant;
 colItem       : OLEVariant;
 oEnum         : IEnumvariant;
 iValue        : LongWord;
begin;
 objWMIService := GetWMIObject('winmgmts:\\localhost\root\SecurityCenter2');

 colItems      := objWMIService.ExecQuery('SELECT * FROM AntiVirusProduct','WQL',0);
 oEnum         := IUnknown(colItems._NewEnum) as IEnumVariant;
 while oEnum.Next(1, colItem, iValue) = 0 do
 begin
   Writeln(Format('displayName                    %s',[VarStrNull(colItem.displayName)]));// String
   Writeln(Format('instanceGuid                   %s',[VarStrNull(colItem.instanceGuid)]));// String
   Writeln(Format('pathToSignedProductExe         %s',[VarStrNull(colItem.pathToSignedProductExe)]));// String
   Writeln(Format('pathToSignedReportingExe       %s',[VarStrNull(colItem.pathToSignedReportingExe)]));// String
   Writeln(Format('productState                   %s',[VarStrNull(colItem.productState)]));// Uint32
   Writeln('');
 end;
end;
