PowerShell Summit: CIM Deep Dive

Posted by: | April 4, 2016 Comments Off on PowerShell Summit: CIM Deep Dive |

A big thank you to everyone who attended my Summit pre-conference workshop. The interaction was great and I really enjoyed it even though I was feeling the efffects of my flight the previous day.


One thing we discovered was that good old dependable calc has changed. On a Windows 10 (build 14295 and last couple of builds) its now calculator.exe.

PS> Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_Process -Filter "Name LIKE ‘calc%’"

ProcessId Name           HandleCount WorkingSetSize VirtualSize
——— —-           ———– ————– ———–
1400      Calculator.exe 373         56770560       336953344


On Windows 2012 r2 its still calc.exe which caused a bit of confusion until we realised what was happening
