WMI tool for XP pro 64b needs "elevated" administrator rights - How do

I am attempting to fix a Windows Management Instrumentation WMI problem using the Microsoft WMI tools. But this tool requires that I log on as an "elevated" administrator.

WMI TOOL LINK:

I have searched through XP but have not found how to become "elevated".

Running the WMI diagnostic tools as administrator is not good enough. Diagnotstics stops after it starts and gives message that tools can only be run by an "elevated administrator.



How do I get around this?

  1. You can choose "run as" from the program's properties or you can log in on an account with administrator rights.
  2. hi bubblehead - yes i have logged on as administrator - but there is no "run as" in the program's properties

    any other suggestions?

    here is something that may help you (new links that I found that I did not put in my question and is too technical for me):
