Understanding WMI and SoftwareLicensingProduct Class

2 posts in this topic

Currently I have the following

Dim $strcomputer = "."

Dim $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $strcomputer & "\root\cimv2")
Dim $colSettings = $objWMIService.ExecQuery ("SELECT * FROM SoftwareLicensingProduct")

For $objComputer in $colSettings
    $LicenseStatus = $objComputer.LicenseStatus
    $EvaluationendDate = _WMIDateStringToDate($objComputer.EvaluationendDate)
    $GracePeriodRemaining = $objComputer.GracePeriodRemaining
Next

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc534596(VS.85).aspx for SoftwareLicensingProduct Class

Ignore the fact that it's missing _WMIDateStringToDate for now the important part that I'm stuck on is the value returned for GracePeriodRemaining.

I know that what is currently held on the PC in WMI for GracePeriodRemaining is the following.

0

35940

0

0

0

0

0

What is being returned in the code above for GracePeriodRemaining is 0.

Is this because the query is only returning the first row?

How to I access different rows? I've had a read on the beginners WMI thread but can't see what I'm after.

Any pointers would be greatly received.

Ok using Scriptomatic I've now got

$wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
$wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
$colItems = ""
$strComputer = "localhost"

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM SoftwareLicensingProduct", "WQL", $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)

$Output = ""

For $objItem In $colItems
    $Output = $objItem.GracePeriodRemaining
    If $Output <> 0 then ExitLoop
Next

Msgbox(48,"WMI Output",$Output)

This now returns 35940 which is the value I was after.
