Network Inventory Expert - Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Why I can't get information from remote computers?
A: Network Inventory Expert uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) through DCOM RPC. Please, check services: "COM+ Event system", "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" and "Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator" on the problem PC. Also, the account attempting remote access should be an administrator on the target computer.


Q: Why I can't get information from remote computer with Windows XP SP2 / Vista?
A: Network Inventory Expert uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) through DCOM RPC. It requires special configuration of Windows Firewall in Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista to allow remote connections. WMI needs to support connection with RPC and DCOM (TCP ports 135 and 445).

You need to apply a special Windows Firewall policy which allows remote administration. You can use the Group Policy editor (Gpedit.msc) to allow remote administration:

  • Under the Local Computer Policy heading, open the Computer Configuration folder.
  • Open the Administrative Templates folder.
  • Open the Network folder.
  • Open the Network Connections folder.
  • Open the Windows Firewall folder.
  • If the computer is in the domain then open the Domain Profile folder, otherwise open the Standard Profile folder.
  • Click Windows Firewall: Allow remote administration exception.
  • On the Action menu, select Properties.
  • Click Enable, and then click OK.

The step-by-step guide is provided here: "Connecting Through Windows Firewall"


Q: Why I can't get information from remote computer with Windows 2003?
A: In Windows XP and earlier, the WMI Windows Installer Provider is installed by default. In Windows 2003 the WMI Windows Installer Provider is an optional component. To install this provider, open the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet and click Add/Remove Windows Components. Select the Management and Monitoring Tools check box, then click Details. Select the WMI Windows Installer Provider check box, and click OK.


Q: Why I can't get information from remote computer with Windows 95/98?
A: You should install the WMI CORE. You can download it from www.microsoft.com


Q: I have installed WMI CORE on PC with Windows 95/98, but can't view information from it.
A: The Windows Management service starts automatically on computers running Windows NT, but not on computers running Windows 95/98. To set up the Windows Management service to start automatically on a Windows 95/98 system, please, run regedit.exe and change the following values:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE]
"EnableDCOM"="Y"
"EnableRemoteConnect"="Y"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]
"SetupForDCOM"="1"
"AutostartWin9X"="2"
"EnableAnonConnections"="1"

Q: Is Network Inventory Expert spyware?
A: Network Inventory Expert is shareware, not adware or spyware! Network Inventory Expert will never send any data to us!


Q: I have an error message [80041003]: The current user does not have permission to perform the action.
A: This typically results when the process trying to access the namespace does not have the required WMI privileges. The account attempting remote access should be an administrator on the target computer. In addition, the account might need to have a specific privilege enabled. To troubleshoot this error check the namespace security on the remote namespace to see the privileges enabled for the account.

You can access the WMI Control and the Security tab in the Computer Management Console:

  • Right-click on My Computer and click Manage.
  • Double-click Services and Applications and then double-click WMI Control.
  • Right-click WMI Control and then click Properties.
  • In the WMI Control Properties dialog box click the Security tab.
  • A folder named Root with a plus sign (+) next to it should now be visible. Expand this tree as necessary to locate the namespace CIMV2.
  • Click the Security button. A list of users and their permissions appears. If the user is on that list modify the permissions as appropriate. Add "network service" account (from local computer accounts) and administrator account. If the user is not on the list, click the Add button, and add the user from the location (local machine, domain, etc.) where the account resides.
  • In order to view and set namespace security, the user must have Read Security and Edit Security permissions. Administrators have these permissions by default, and can assign the permissions to other user accounts as required.
  • If this user needs to access the namespace remotely, you must select the Remote Enable permission.
  • By default, user permissions set on a namespace apply only to that namespace. If you want the user to have access to that namespace and all subnamespaces in the tree below it, or in subnamespaces only, click the Advanced button. Click Edit and specify the scope of access in the resulting dialog box.

  • In the My Computer dialog box, click the COM Security tab.
  • Under Launch and Activate Permissions, click Edit Limits.
  • In the Launch Permission dialog box, follow these steps if your name or your group does not appear in the Groups or user names list: In the Launch Permission dialog box, click Add. In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, add your name and the group in the Enter the object names to select box and then click OK.
  • In the Launch Permission dialog box, select your user and group in the Group or user names box. In the Allow column under Permissions for User, select Remote Launch, and then click OK.
DCOM Configuration

Q: I have an error message [800706BA]: The RPC server is unavailable.
A: Network Inventory Expert uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) through DCOM RPC. Please, check services: "COM+ Event system", "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" and "Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator" on the problem PC.

In Windows 2003 the WMI Windows Installer Provider is an optional component. To install this provider, open the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet and click Add/Remove Windows Components.
