cannot establish project reference to WMIScriptUtils 1.0

P: n/a
I'm developing an ASP.NET solution, and one of the things I need to do
is to have it return system information for various servers on our
network. I wanted to do this using the various methods of
WMIScriptUtils 1.0. I have previously done this in a VB application,
so I know it is do-able. The problem I'm having is that when I go to
Project->References->COM and select WMIScriptUtils 1.0 Libary and
click OK, it says that the reference has been saved, but when I try to
open it again the reference is gone. I've tried this repeatedly, and
it never works, and so I can't make any references to this in my code.
Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hi davidz,
Thank you for using Microsoft newsgroup Service. Based on your description,
you want to add the reference for the
"WMIScriptUtils 1.0 Libary". However, you found that everytime after you
select and add the reference of it, it didn't appear in the reference list
of the project in VS.NET. Is my understanding of your problem correct?

I think the problem seems a bit strange. Would you please try the below
steps:
1. When add the reference in the Select Dialog, try using the "Browse"
button to find the "dll" file and add it . Then check out whether the
reference appears.

2.Try creating a new project(winform or asp.net) and try adding the
reference in the new project to see whether the problem remain.

Please try out the preceding suggestion to see whether it helps.

I think the behavior is normal. You may expand the "Reference" node in your
Solution Explorer and see whether the reference is there.
