Scriptomatic – a tool to learn about the WMI interface.
Scriptomatic is a magic file which can actually write your scripts. It will almost never make a syntax error, and will guide into new scripting areas. Finally, Scriptomatic will prepare you if you want to get inside the WMI (Windows Management Interface).
Scriptomatic will show you what WMI is all about. I have included a copy of Scriptomatic along with instructions on how to get started in my Logon Script eBook. This is the ultimate tool if you want to collect information about the system processes and object classes. It will swamp you with data, so you have to master the filters.
Here is an example of Scriptomatic in action, in Diagram 1 (Thumbnail) I asked Scriptomatic to collect the WIN32_OperatingSystem information. Underneath is the result.

Some techies like to use scripts to collect information on DHCP, DNS, RRAS and other services. Scriptomatic is the ideal assistant to learn about the processes and display the statistics.
