WMI at the Office

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

If you have Office 2010 installed you should find an msapps12 namespace on your machine.

The classes exposed by this namespace can be found with

Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\msapps12 –List

There are a lot of them! The classes seem to be broken down by Office application  for instance to see the classes for dealing with Word documents

Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\msapps12 -List *word*

I can’t seem to find any documentation for these classes so a bit of trial and error is involved
