Script Coding is now Available

I just came from "" and noticed so many complaints about their being no "code samples." Well you all can just pop over to and then use "Marcin Policht" in the search box to find this book. Once you are at this book's page you can see a link for "Related Materials" and it is there that you will find a small download "" to apease those who need the code samples.I put a 5 star rating here only to offset those that said they would give it a 5 if it had the coding samples.

Informative and well organized

This book has become one of my most used resources. If you are looking for a way to use WMI and WBEM to inexpensively manage a Windows environment, this is it.This book will guide you through the steps to understand and maximize the capabilities of WMI, which IS FREE. It's really a minimal cost when you consider that it opens up an understanding that could possibly alleviate the need for one or two of your third party management products (which are costing you a fortune).Anyway, I really enjoyed it. I have been waiting for some more information than is offered on the MSFT site, and this book gave me what I needed, and more...
