|Message:||WinMgmt could not initialize the core parts. This could be due to a badly installed version of WinMgmt, WinMgmt repository upgrade failure, insufficient disk space or insufficient memory.|
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) could not start. The startup process creates many Component Object Model (COM) objects, allocates memory, accesses registry keys, etc. A failure in any one of these steps can cause WMI not to start.
To determine why WMI could not start
If the problem is with a COM component, reregister the DLLs.
To reregister the DLLs
for /f %s in (‘dir /b /s %windir%\system32\wbem\*.dll’) do regsvr32 /s %s
If the problem is insufficient memory, close some programs.
To close programs while WMI is running
If the problem is insufficient hard disk space, free up some space on the system drive.
If you have tried the preceding solutions and WMI still does not start, some files in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder might be corrupted. Correct this condition by restoring the WMI repository. Possible ways to restore the repository are:
Note: If you force WMI to rebuild the repository, all static data or other changes to the repository that are not captured in the original MOF file will be lost. You should keep a copy of the corrupted file in case you need to either restore it or have Microsoft Product Support Services evaluate the corrupted files.
