WMI Windows Feature Enumeration

info Nessus Plugin ID 44871


It is possible to enumerate Windows features using WMI.


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.
