‘ERROR: Windows PATH is bad – no path to WBEM’ and ‘wmic.exe not recognised’ errors

Some Developer versions of Windows 10 and 11 do not contain wmic.exe.

Please use a Release version of Windows or add wmic.exe plus associated files/folders from a full release version of Windows.

To add wmic.exe from a release version, copy the C:\Windows\System32\wbem folder and subfolders (you will need Admin rights). You will also need to add the folder to your Windows Path.

Note: Running SFC /scannow may remove wmic.exe on a developer version of Windows (untested?).
