wmiprvse.exe process refers to a core Windows management technology known as Windows Management Instrumentation which allows users to be able to manage local and remote systems alike. Through WMI daily management tasks through programming or scripting languages can be undertaken. To mention a few, the list includes the ability to reboot a computer remotely or manually start a process on a remote system. Among the capabilities of WMI, one can include views, querying, eventing and remoting.
Developers use the wmiprvse.exe file in order to develop applications used for monitoring purposes. These programs can notify users about important events related to network and file or application management right after each event occurs. With wmiprvse.exe, file managers in the enterprise environment are capable of configuring and searching for desktop system information or network and application information across the network.
The wmiprvse.exe file is placed with other services in the shared service host. This started to be applied with the release of MS Windows XP. Providers are also loaded separately in the wmiprvse.exe file since it considers the wmiprvse.exe executable as a host process.
