    Services from LocalHost

    While trying to get a list of services from localhost...

    An unhandled exception of type 'System.Management.ManagementException' occurred in system.management.dll

    Additional information: Invalid namespace

    I have the System.Management reference,
    I have also imported the namespace.

    The query is:
    strQuery = "SELECT * FROM Win32_Service"

    //setup
    query = new ManagementObjectSearcher(ms, oq);

    //This line generates the error
    queryCollection = query.Get();

    Ideas?

    I don't see any errors in the information you provided. Maybe a look at this project

    http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/WMI.asp

    might help.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    nvoigt, If your interested it was because of the scope I had written.

    The proper way is:

    ManagementScope scope = new ManagementScope("\\\\localhost\\root\\cimv2", options);

    options is the connection options. Using the default constructor.

    I'm not sure what '\\cimv2' is though
