Error installing Powergadgets

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I've been unable to install Powergadgets on several laptops that I've tried. These are new OS builds with no previous versions of Powershell or Powergadgets.

 When I try to install Powergadgets, I get a the Please Wait - Initializing Script Files for a few seconds and then I get: "PowerGadgets Creator Installation has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." Using the debug option, I get the following additional information: " An unhandled exception of type 'System.Management.ManagementException' occurred in System.Management.dll. Additional information: Provider load failure "

As mentioned, this has been tried on several different laptops (altho all the same model Dell D620's) with Windows XP SP2 and all of the latest available patches.

I welcome any ideas.

Yes, the WMI service is running and working on the PC. I can make any get-wmiobject call to my local PC that I can think of using powershell. Not sure what Class the install script is trying to access - so I can't really diagnose further.

That seems to have allowed it to install. I'm assuming that bypassed 'something' that was triggering a WMI call?

 Will tinker and let you know if anything seems 'amiss' - but for now. Thanks!
