set service = GetObject("Winmgmts:")
set emptyclass = service.Get
emptyclass.path_.class = "REMOVETEST00"
set prop = emptyclass.properties_.add ("p", 19)

prop.qualifiers_.add "key", true
emptyclass.properties_.add ("q", 19).Value = 12

emptyclass.put_

'create an instance and override the property
set instance = service.get ("RemoveTest00").spawninstance_

instance.properties_("q").Value = 24
instance.properties_("p").Value = 1
instance.put_

'retrieve the instance and remove the property
set instance = service.get ("removetest00=1")
set property = instance.properties_ ("q")

WScript.echo "Overridden value of property is [24]:", property.value
WScript.echo ""

instance.properties_.remove "q"
set property = instance.properties_ ("q")
WScript.echo "Value of property after removal is [12]:", property.value
