Some of you may notice when you upgrade from any version of SVS to SWV 6.1 that WMI doesn't work.  This is a known issue that we found late in the test cycle but it's very easy to workaround.  What's happening is basically the WMI provider isn't getting registered and the old one is gone (we've moved the install path of SWV).  So there are 3 options to fix this issue:

1) Uninstall SVS and do a clean install of SWV 6.1
2) After the upgrade run a repair on SWV 6.1 via Add or Remove Programs.
3) Run the following Batch commands:
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Workspace Virtualization\SvsWmi.dll" /s
mofcomp "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Workspace Virtualization\SvsWmi.mof"

And just as a reminder, this is only for upgrades not clean installs.  And if neither of these workaround do solve WMI issues with 6.1 upgrades please post in the comments section.
