Maybe someone can point me in the right direction or tell me what I am doing wrong. $computers = Get-Content -Path "list.txt" Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_ComputerSystem $computers Pause This is the error: Get-WmiObject : Invalid query "Select Computer 1, computer 2, Etc. It does list all the computers from the list.txt file.

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_ComputerSystem -ComputerName $computers What you're doing is providing $computers as part of the query string, which isn't correct.
