Wmi 64 bits



How is to possible the PRTG read 64-bit wmi contexts? Do this question because I need to monitor an application that only generates data in this context, and cannot change the software.

Have you tried to access the class through the WMI tester to see if that works? If not, you may need to try and build a custom PS script that you can run through 64-bit powershell similar to how the user in this post was able to run his.

Look at the first post after the main post, he explains there how he got his 64-bit WMI class monitored.

The WmiTest does not work, but the powershell yes. Would you like PRTG ran on 64-bit context, in order to avoid customizations scripts.

It's something that we are working on, glad the Powershell solution works for you though.
