Problem Following SMP tutorial with SDK 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm attempting to follow the SMP development tutorial but I'm starting with Win SDK 8.1.  Attempting to use convert-moftoprovider fails with missing mofs that are referenced in storagewmi_provider.mof (like msft_filestoragetier.mof).  I don't see these in Windows Kits/8.1/Include/um.  I do see some of these classes in /C/Windows/System32/wbem/storagewmi.mof but so far attempting to include this mof file doesn't allow the class generation to complete.

    So I guess I have a couple of broad questions about where the MSFT_ meta classes are defined as well as how this class schema is versioned (per SDK).  I would also like to get a overview of the meta model, I guess generating code and pointing visual studio to the generated artifacts is the best mechanism here?

    Thanks, I haven't dealt with Windows Mgmt environment in a while but do have a broad exposure to CIM; so some of these questions are likely due to my ignorance.  Any pointers are apprecieated.
