What is ..Windows/system32/wbem for?


  • Hi all experts,

    I recently experienced '.Net framework 3.5 SP1' install failure cause of the missing info in PATH environment variable. That missing info turns out to be %windir%\system32\wbem according to the following official article :

    I wonder what this ../system32/wbem is for.
    And also, any ideas why this info is missing from PATH environment variable?

    Thank you!

  • This directory is where WMI stuff lives (search web for WMI WBEM should give you lots of info).
