How do I rebuild the WMI database?
Quick WMI Rebuild
Open a command shell and enter the following commands:
cd \winnt\system32\wbem or cd \windows\system32\wbem
for %i in (*.mof,*.mfl) do mofcomp.exe %i
In the same directory, it is sometimes neccesary to also re-register the related dlls.
for %i in (*.dll) do regsvr32 /r %i
Finally, restart the wingmt service
net stop "winmgmt"
net start "winmgmt"
Note: Another suggested step includes deleting the "Repository" folder under the wbem directory, prior to initiating the mofcomp step. This has not been neccessary in previous fixes.
