Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service is required to use Intel® PROSet for Windows* device manager. If WMI service is disabled on boot, then advanced configuration tabs and items associated with Intel® PROSet for Windows device manager and Advanced Networking Service (ANS) may not be displayed and advanced configuration items can not be changed.
- Items configured using Intel® PROSet for Windows device manager when the WMI service was available will retain the current configuration if the WMI service is disabled when booting. Changing the configuration will not be possible unless the WMI service is enabled and the computer is restarted.
- Intel® PROSet for Windows device manager uses a WMI provider. The WMI Provider uses client impersonation to manage the security. Every call will be made in the client’s own security context. This context is passed down to the lower layers. An operation may fail if the user does not have suitable administrative rights on the target machine.
