There are WMI repository files ("System32\wbem\Repository") that are left from a windows 7 installation that cannot be loaded. How can I query against it?

Thank you.

WMI is a framework for access and doesn't contain data itself beyone how to query or input data. http://blogs.technet.com/b/askperf/archive/2009/04/13/wmi-rebuilding-the-wmi-repository.aspx
There is no offline query, it's either local or remote. WMI is M$'s version of the Common Information Model http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Information_Model_%28computing%29
