So how do I query CIM for a keyword similar to: Get-WmiObject -list *product Only thing I can find is: Get-CimClass -Namespace root\cimv2 but I don't want to go through that whole list. Is WMI explorer my only option? February 4, 2016 at 2:50 pm #34878 Matt BloomfieldParticipant Get-WmiObject -List *product and Get-CimClass -ClassName *product Give the same output.
