( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I use a Workstation module I wrote myself. one of the subs returns a WMI handle...

sub get_wmi {
        my $self = shift;
        my $name = $self->name or do { 
                warn("Cannot return WMI handle for anonymous workstation.\n");
                return 0; 
        use Win32::OLE ;
        my $wmi = Win32::OLE->GetObject( "winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate,(security)}//$name");
        if ($wmi) {
              return $wmi;        
              return 0;
You should then be able to do $wmi->CreateProcess("your.exe") or whatever (see for details of WMI)...

Or Google for "perl+WMI" - or visit

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
