Suggested hotfixes for WMI related issue on Windows platforms

Last week a KB-article was released with “Suggested hotfixes for WMI related issue on Windows platforms”. It really recommend that you read it because WMI is critical to Configuration Manager, Group polices, Operations Manager and so on. As you all know without working WMI we cannot manage the systems out there.

I will deploy the following WMI stability hotfix in all my Windows 7 projects, note that is is updated for Windows 2008 R2 SP1 and Windows 7 SP1.
KB24659900x80041002 (WBEM_E_NOT_FOUND)” error occurs when you try to open a WMI namespace on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2″ I recommend that you have a look at it.
