Remote Administration Software Puts a GUI Face on WMI's Functionality

With PJ Technologies' WMIX 2.0, you don't have to know how to write scripts to take advantage of Windows Management Instrumentation's (WMI's) functionality. WMIX is a GUI-based implementation of WMI. Because it has a GUI, anyone can query and manage remote Windows machines—no scripting is necessary. Because it's based on WMI, you don't have to install any software agents on the client machines.

With WMIX, you can perform such tasks as querying and configuring settings and executing management tasks on local and remote machines. You can also generate built-in or custom reports.

The enhancements in version 2.0 include a built-in script generator and a WQL query wizard. The built-in script generator lets you automatically generate a script for any task you initiate using the GUI. The generated scripts are automatically configured so that they can be run against the local machine, a remote machine, or a group of machines. In addition, all WMI parameters and values are converted to a user-friendly format.

Using WMI Query Language (WQL) queries to filter information that WMI returns is very helpful. However, creating WQL queries can be difficult because you need to know about WMI class definitions and WQL's syntax. WMIX includes a query wizard that guides you through the process of creating WQL queries.

WMIX 2.0 runs on Windows 2000 and later, and supports clients running Windows NT SP3 and later. It's priced at $89 per user license. For more information, visit the WMIX v2 website or contact PJ Technologies at [email protected], 786-268-3517, or 888-330-4188.
