using System;
using System.Management;

public class Sample 
{    
    public static void Main() 
    {

        // Get the WMI class
        ManagementClass processClass = 
            new ManagementClass("Win32_Process");
        processClass.Options.UseAmendedQualifiers = true;

        Console.WriteLine(
            processClass.GetText(
            TextFormat.Mof));
    }
}
Imports System
Imports System.Management


Class Sample
    Public Overloads Shared Function _
        Main(ByVal args() As String) As Integer

        ' Get the WMI class
        Dim processClass As New ManagementClass( _
            "Win32_Process")
        processClass.Options.UseAmendedQualifiers = True

        Console.WriteLine( _
            processClass.GetText( _
            TextFormat.Mof))

Remarks

Currently, the only format that WMI supports is Managed Object Format (MOF). In the future, other formats will be supported, such as Extensible Markup Language (XML).
