  • WMI is not available in Metro style applications. What specifically were you looking to use in that API?

     

    Thanks,

  • It would be helpful if you could report this thru the http://Connect.Microsoft.com as a missing API. Look under "Windows Kits\Software Development Kit\API missing" and provide the scenario you are needing the missing feature to achieve.

    Let me know if you have any problems and I'll enter it for you so I can make sure this is captured.

  • Can you give more details on the missing API link?  I can't find it.

    I want to create a WiFi Analyzer app, but can't get information about local SSIDs.  I don't want to connect, just see what is present and signal strength.  I tried WinRT->NetworkInformation and considered WinRT-WMI.  No go on either.

    I'm pretty disappointed.
