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.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 1709

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows - Fall Creators Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10? The latest release brings back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1607 which is the August 2016 Anniversary Update.
