Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a standardized programming interface for managing computers, servers, and networks. Applications and scripts can use WMI to access information about almost any Windows resource, on the local computer or remotely.


WMI scripts and tools use the user credentials of the person that runs them. If you run scripts or tools that access and modify WMI properties, you must be a member of the local Administrators group on the computer with the WMI repository.

The following section explains how to administer Speech Server through WMI scripting and using the WMI command-line (WMIC) tool. Speech Server can also be administered through the Speech Server Administrator console.
