    Sure would be nice with a cim explorer, like the wmi explorer for Windows 7 where you simply can browse through the different instances of objects. By the way, i wonder where those objects are located? Is it the OS itself, .NET or where does cim-instance get the objects from? 🙂 Curious user.

    AFAIK, Its from the same WMI namespaces where CIM is just a WSMAN friendly a wrapper. You should be able to Get any WMI instance with Get-CIMInstance.
