Get-CimClass changes

One thing that I don’t think I’ve mentioned is that the Get-CimClass output changed during the development process.

In PowerShell v3 RTM you can dig into a WMI class like this

Get-CimClass -ClassName Win32_OperatingSystem | select -ExpandProperty CimClassMethods
Get-CimClass -ClassName Win32_OperatingSystem | select -ExpandProperty CimClassProperties
Get-CimClass -ClassName Win32_OperatingSystem | select -ExpandProperty CimClassQualifiers
Get-CimClass -ClassName Win32_OperatingSystem | select -ExpandProperty CimSystemProperties

In at least some of the CTP versions of PowerShell v3 there were parallel, or alternate, properties you could use: Methods , Properties and Qualifiers respectively.

You may see reference to them in older posts – if you do just prefix with CimClass and you’ll be good.
