Is WMI reached EOL for Windows 10 21H2 version of IoT Enterprise LTSC ?

Copper Contributor

Heard that, the Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) reached End of Life (EOL). 


I mainly wanted to know and get key information on these queries - 

  • We are using Windows 10 OS 21H2 IoT Enterprise LTSC version (build 19044) on on of our product and building application on top of that Windows 10 OS 21H2 uses WMI component. So, is EOL WMI affect this Windows 10 21H2 LTSC Enterprise as well ?
  • - If so, is there any official information available WMIC reached EOL for "Windows 10 - 21H2 IoT Enterprise LTSC" as well and should be replaced with powershell. 


Because "Windows 10 - 21H2 IoT Enterprise LTSC" has end of support / service till Jan 13th 2032. So, does WMI EOL really imacts this version of Windwso 10 - 21H2 IoT Enterprise LTSC ?

No, actually I didn't get required details what I was looking from that URL you had shared. I couldn't see, it talks about WMI EOL applicable for Windows 10 21H2 IoT Enterprise LTSC . 


But it specifies for Windows 11. 

To get official information regarding the status of WMIC and its support on Windows 10 21H2 IoT Enterprise LTSC, you may want to check Microsoft's official documentation, release notes, or announcements related to Windows IoT Enterprise LTSC releases. Additionally, reaching out to Microsoft support or consulting with your Microsoft representative can provide more clarity on this matter.
