In Windows Management Instrumentation, only administrators can successfully retrieve fully populated instances of Win32_WMISetting.
The Win32_WMISetting class retrieves the majority of its property data from the system registry. The Win32_WMISetting provider (Wbemcore.dll) opens the associated registry key for full access when it enumerates this class. By default, non-administrator users only have read access to this key. The result is that the provider does not open the key, and does not fully populate the properties of Win32_WMISetting.
