Creating a Managed WMI Client

The current release of WMI does contain the System.Management namespace, which exposes a number of API's that interact with WMI. However, it is not recommended that you use this namespace.

If you wish to create a managed WMI client, it is recommended that you use the Windows Management Infrastructure (MI). MI is the next-generation version of WMI, and contains full support for managed code. For more information, see How to Implement a Managed MI Client.
