Where is Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.dll assembly? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using VS2015 and Windows 8 + 10 SDK, and trying to build the MI client sample code "How to: Enumerate All Instances of a Class (C#)".

    According to MSDN, Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.dll should be part of SDK 8, but I cannot find it anywhere in C:\Program Files(x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\, nor anywhere in SDK 10.

    Strangely, the runtime assembly exists in GAC but not selectable from Solution Explorer > Add References > Assemblies > Framework or Extensions.

    Where is Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.dll?

    Why isn't it "public" in the GAC?

    Thanks for any hints!

  • On my machine (Win 10 + VS2015) it is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\WMI\v1.0
