MS will deprecate and block access to WMIC

Heads up, MS will block access to and remove WMIC.

Microsoft forum post about deprecating WMIC

So, anyone that has apps that are relying on WMIC should start planning on a replacement.

Yes, Microsoft can be annoying with deprecations, just like Apple and Google.

If you need WMI, you can use MBS classes.

seems you “only” have to replace the calls to WMIC with Get-CIMInstance ?

WMIC, the app, is deprecated since 2016. At some point removal comes.

It’s part of MS slowly deprecating its “CMD Shell” to favor its “Powershell”.
