Description

Manageability is increasingly the value differentiator between products. Customers need to create management solutions quickly and reliably. They need to manage their entire IT spectrum consistently using standard-based technologies. Come to this session to learn how to make your product manageable in standard and powerful ways using the Windows Management Framework (WMF) and plug into the growing ecosystem of tools and IT management capabilities. See how the WMF enables (via .NET, Native Code, PowerShell, Workflow and CIM/WSMan) managing your product by standard-based tools, powerful command utilities, REST APIs or standard Windows graphical user interface.

    The Discussion

      One of the best talks at BUILD - just not long enough!

      I am sorry if this note is placed for wrong place, but I could not find any better suitable place.

      I watched this Build conference video and I was NOT actually surprised to learn that there hasn't been too much interest by developer to WMI.

      The speaker mention that developers get cold when it comes to native C++ which is required to develop a WMI/WMF/CIM based components.

      I looked these videos and I am truly intrested in to develop and use them when I would need to integrate application management infrastructure as part of integrated solution which spans in multiple windows servers / desktops.

      I believe this "developers getting cold" is not whole truth but rather lack of information made available for developers, or at least not in my case or cases I or my colleagues have been working.

      Demo presenter says that these will be made available in download as we speak. However, there is a very little information anywhere I search for these.  

      I still don't find CIM Provider template for VS, neither by use of VS2010 Ultimate / VS11 Develop Preview (not express).

      I downloaded WINDOWS MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK 3.0 CTP1 RELEASE, which you cannot install into Windows 8 x64, neither any of the components can be used in VS11 Developer Preview.

      Build was for Windows 8, fair enough, I saw that presenter where using VS2010 and I were able to install these components to Windows 7 / VS2010 Ultimate(s). Again cannot find anywhere the CIM templates neither more information in Channel9, MSDN, MSND Downloads, TechNet, or Microsoft Downloads.

      I could not even find the forum for WMI / WMF / CIM Stuff. Now after two days of searching I find it hard to keep up the motivation to resolve this lack of information, even though videos were promising.

      Any links for futher resources would rescue my hope. Wink
