Where can I download WBEM files for WXP?

Joe

All files in my WBEM folder have mysteriously disappeared except for the snmp
& xml subdirectories. Consequently, I'm having several system problems (e.g.,
cannot access service dependency tabs, WMI can't start, strange i-Net
connectivty issue, etc.). I checked Microsoft Download but the only WMI
Redistributable applies to W2K.
My platform: WXP Pro SP3, NIS 2009, IE8, ADSL, Stand-Alone Computer.

At a command prompt issue the following command:

rundll32 wbemupgd, UpgradeRepository

If things don't improve then try re-registering the WMI components or a
comprehensive WMI rebuild, see here for more help:

-Thank you, John John, for your help & links.
I ran the command you suggested but it did not help.
I then copied the core WMI files from another system & began working with
the WMI Diagnosis Tool to affect repair. This was cumbersome because the "for
%i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i" AND "for %i in (*.exe) do %i /RegServer"
scripts did not work on my computer, meaning that I had to register the
components one-by-one.
The WMI Service is now up & running, though I still have some problems
(e.g., nothing is listed on the Dependencies tab of any Service). For some
reason, a few .dll & .exes continue to be flagged by the Tool as needing to
be registered, most notably WINMGMT.EXE & UNSECAPP.EXE. Addionally,
registration for FASTPROX.DLL & WBEMPROX.DLL won't take for all classes.
I also notice that none of the .mfl, .mof, or .xsl files that exist on my
other identically set up computer are present in my reconstructed WBEM
folder. Should I simply copy these over as well?
Appreciate any further advice.

If you did the comprehensive rebuild as shown in the link, and if WMI is
still bugged up, then an in-place upgrade is the only thing else that I
can suggest.

Thanks for your advice, once again. What you've helped me to understand is
that I can either go with what I have or reinstall Windows. It's too bad that
Microsoft does not offer a WMI Redistributable for WXP like the one they do
for earlier versions of Windows. I will abide with what I've got for now,
considering that none of my current computing activity is impaied, & engage
in a full-throttle wipe & reload in August to coincide with upgrading NIS to
a new version. Cheers, John John.
