WMI Code Creator 1.0.2029.14830
Explore the power of WMI with this powerful developer-oriented tool

WMI Code Creator is a small, free tool which can help generate code which uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) to obtain information about your system, or carry out various system management tasks.

At its simplest you might create a script to tell you your BIOS date, for instance, or the name of your PC's workgroup. Combine some scripts and you could build your own, very powerful system information program. And you can then get more active, creating scripts which actually perform some action, anything from starting or stopping a few Windows services to setting your PC's fan speed.

But what's really interesting here, though, is WMI Code Creator's ease of use. Because although the program is aimed directly at developers and system administrators, and doesn't make any attempt to hide this (the interface is packed with jargon), it's straightforward enough for almost anyone to use.

As an example, click the "Query for data" tab, and choose something that looks interesting in the Classes list: Win32_ComputerSystem, say.

The "Results" box will list the various details you can query for that class: Domain, Manufacturer, Model, Name, NumberOfLogicalProcessors, PrimaryOwnerName, TotalPhysicalMemory, UserName, WorkGroup and more.

Click Workgroup, say, and the program will generate a Visual Basic Script to display your system workgroup.

And you don't even have to run it manually: just click "Execute Code" and the program will open a window where you can see the results.

Just about anyone can use the Code Creator to explore WMI, then, and get a feel for what it can do.

But of course if you do have some development experience then you can take this much further. The program allows you to browse the namespaces on your system, receive events, execute methods, and is even able to generate code in Visual Basic Script, VB.NET or C#: not bad for a portable tool with a mere 295KB executable.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
