? WinWMI

Sponsor

A simple one header solution to interacting with Windows WMI in C++

Usage

Just #include "winwmi.hpp" in your code!

Initialize

To initialize your winwmi you basically should do:

const auto win_wmi = std::make_unique<WinWmi>(
        L"root\\CIMV2", // WMI Namespace
        L"Win32_Process" // Optional WMI Class
        // Optional WMI Method to set data (ex. L"Set")
    );

if (const auto error = win_wmi->GetLastError(); error != WmiError::kNone)
    throw std::exception(fmt::format("WinWmi Failed with code: {}\n", static_cast<int>(error)).c_str());

Retrieving information from class

if (auto res = win_wmi->get_all(L"Caption"); res.has_value())
{
    for (const auto& element : res.value())
    {
        fmt::print(L"[WnWMI] Caption: {}\n", element);
    }
} 

WinWmi Errors

WinWmi has got his own error handling which can be accessed via

win_wmi->GetLastError()

If you want to see what code does mean then you can look in to WmiError enum. Their names should describe what exactly happened and what went wrong.
