Description: Returns a translated string for properties that have a "Values" Qualifier.

After browsing through some WMI scripts on the forum, I thought, there's gotta be a simple and direct way to get value strings from ReturnValues other than Case Statements and writing each one in manually.

Local $RtnVal = _WMI_Function()

Switch $RtnVal
    Case 0
         $RtnVal = 'success'
    Case 1
         $RtnVal = 'name does not exist'
    Case 2
         $RtnVal = 'unknown failure'
    Case 3; etc, etc. (some have over 20 of them)
         $RtnVal = 'etc'
    Case Else

So, after playing with it some, I came up with this solution...


Please let me know if any problems.
