WMI Initialization Failure

4/26/2018 269 Contributors

Purpose:
You receive the error, WMI Initialization Failure, or other error indicating WMI failed to initialize on the target computer.

Resolution:
This is most likely due to corruption in the WMI Repository. Alternatively, it could be a bad device driver preventing the WMI system from starting properly.

See the WMI Diagnostics KB for information on how to rebuild the WMI database.
