I am trying to open the operating system currently in use, using WMI .

Found this Autoit BCD and technet blog

Trying to do this 

Const BcdLibraryString_Description = &h12000004
Const Current = "{fa926493-6f1c-4193-a414-58f0b2456d1e}"

strComputer = "."

Set objStoreClass = GetObject("winmgmts:{(Backup,Restore)}\\" & _
 strComputer & "\root\wmi:BcdStore")

objStoreClass.OpenStore "", objStore
objStore.OpenObject Current, objDefault

objDefault.GetElement BcdLibraryString_Description, objElement
Wscript.Echo "Current operating system: " & objElement.String

Here is what I have, but the $obCurrent is not an object.

Const $BCDWindowsImageType = 0x10200003
Const $BCDLegacyImageType = 0x10300006
Const $BCDLibString_Desc = 0x12000004
Const $BcdOSLoaderDevice_OSDevice = 0x21000001
$Current = "{fa926493-6f1c-4193-a414-58f0b2456d1e}"

Local $WMILocator = ObjCreate("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")

Local $WMIRootNameSpace = $WMILocator.ConnectServer(@ComputerName, "root\wmi")
Local $oStoreClass = $WMIRootNameSpace.Get("BcdStore")

Local $objInParam = $oStoreClass.Methods_('OpenStore').InParameters.SpawnInstance_()
$objInParam.Properties_.Item('File') = ""
Local $oBCDStore = $oStoreClass.ExecMethod_('OpenStore',$objInParam).Store   ;  The Store property contains our object value

If IsObj($oBCDStore) Then

        $obCurrent =$oBCDStore.OpenObject($Current)


I am not the best at Objects, so any help will be appreciated.
