Important note:  If you’ve installed a Service Pack, you need to insert your Windows XP CD with Service Pack integration (called as the Slipstreamed Windows XP CD). If you don’t have one, you may point to the %Windir%ServicePackFilesi386 folder for a recent version of the system files required during WMI repair. Or you may create a slipstreamed Windows XP CD and insert it when prompted. Click Start, Run and type the following command, and press ENTER: rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection WBEM 132 %windir%infwbemoc.inf Insert your Windows XP CD into the drive when prompted. Repair process should take few minutes to complete. Then restart Windows for the changes to take effect.     For XP/2k3/2000 //

1. Open a CMD prompt on the server and change directory to %windir%System32WBEM (SysWOW64WBEM on x64) 2. Execute the following:

FOR /f %s in ('dir /b /s *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %s
Net stop /y winmgmt
FOR /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %s
Net start winmgmt

Note: Don’t attempt to compile the MOF files in the bini386 folder on a site server, as we contain stub files (names start with an underscore character such as _smsprov.mof) that need to be populated with site specific data through other means.
