Using Windows Installer with WMI

The Windows Installer provider allows Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to access information collected from Windows Installer applications.

The Windows Installer Provider is an optional Windows component. Optional installation of the Windows Installer provider ensures backward compatibility, but does not indicate future availability of the provider. For more information about the availability of the Windows Installer Provider, see Operating System Availability of WMI Components in the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) documentation.

For the current description of this WMI provider, see Windows Installer Provider in the main Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) documentation. For a list of WMI classes that are supported by Windows Installer, see Installed Applications Classes.
