wmic deprecated

I saw a forum post today where the question involved the use of the wmi command line tool wmic.


Wmic was deprecated in Windows Server 2012 - It will eventually be removed.


You should use the CIM cmdlets instead of wmic. The syntax is much easier and the resultant code is easier to understand.


A little known fact – the PowerShell project was originally started as a replacement for wmic.
