Feedback & Suggestions / Repair of WMI Issue (SOLVED)
« on: October 01, 2016, 04:12:54 PM »
When running the repair of the WMI, the search for things to add falls foul in the following circumstance:

If there are any "alternate paths" to hard drives set up as folders via the Computer Management : Disk Management plugin, then the repair searches those as well!  It really needs to leave that stuff alone!  I don't know how easy it would be to check such "links" as being volume mount points, but I had a situation where the repair was looking for MOF files on drives it really shouldn't be going to (containing Win10 and WinXP operating systems, as well as one that was the same as the Win7 it was trying to repair!).

In the end, the only way I could get the WMI repair to run without producing reams of error messages (and presumably also making some bad entries into WMI) was to entirely unmount all such folder-based mount points on the OS hard drive and move that folder structure somewhere safe.
