Hello!! I’m learning about CIM, WMI, WBEM, etc., and am finding it all to be incredibly useful. It appears to be one of those things that you’ll never need until you have it, and then you’ll need it all the time because you can do things that would have seemed to difficult before.
In particular right now, I’m looking at event handlers. Again, amazingly useful stuff. My problem is my imagination is sleeping right now and I can’t imagine what anyone would use them for in the real world. It feels like I’m having trouble imagining a use for, say, a pocket knife, which also has a million uses.
So what do you accomplish using WMI event handlers?
