The following example shows how the client receives notification when an instance of Win32_Process is created because the event class is __InstanceCreationEvent. For more information, see the Windows Management Instrumentation documentation in the MSDN Library at The client receives events synchronously by calling the WaitForNextEvent method. This example can be tested by starting a process, such as Notepad, while the example code is running.
