WMI Initialization Failure

4/26/2018 2810 Contributors

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

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.
