Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is an industry standard from Microsoft for the management of hardware devices, including barcode scanners in a Windows enterprise computing environment.
You can write WMI scripts or applications to automate administrative tasks remotely on networked computers. The tasks interact with Zebra’s WMI Agent to access scanner information and provide command and control capabilities. WMI is designed to be used with network consoles such as Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Agent for scanners is bundled with Zebra’s Scanner SDK for Windows.
