WMI.NET is the managed code library for WMI, and it provides writable properties and methods that can be invoked from managed code. You can also develop applications that provide data to WMI classes by using the System.Management.Instrumentation namespace.
The MI API should be used for all new development. The WMI.NET libraries are now considered to be in final state. No additional development, improvements, or updates will be available for non-security–related issues that affect these libraries.
MI was introduced in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. MI is available as a downloadable update to Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008 Standard through Windows Management Framework 3.0.
For more information about MI, see Windows Management Infrastructure (MI).
