Event ID 24 — Event Filter Query Functionality

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

WMI supports a query language called the WMI Query Language (WQL). WQL is a subset of structured query language (SQL) that is used by most relational database management systems. An event filter query is a WQL query that is used when processing WMI events.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 24
Source: Microsoft-Windows-WMI
Version: 6.1
Message: Event provider %1 attempted to register query "%2" whose target class "%3" in %4 namespace does not exist. The query will be ignored.


Update permanent event subscriptions

To correct the query, examine the event registration by using the WMI Event Registration tool included with CIM Studio and updating the permanent subscriptions for the listed provider and query. If the permanent subscription was created by a MOF file included with an installed product, you must contact the application vendor to correct the faulty registration.


Send events through the Event Provider that satisfies the Event Filter query in question and to verify that they were delivered successfully.
