Synopsis :

It is possible to enumerate Windows features using WMI.

Description :

Nessus was able to enumerate the server features of the remote host by
querying the 'Win32_ServerFeature' class of the '\Root\cimv2' WMI
namespace for Windows Server versions or the 'Win32_OptionalFeature'
class of the '\Root\cimv2' WMI namespace for Windows Desktop versions.

Note that Features can only be enumerated for Windows 7 and later for
desktop versions.
