Message: WMI 'ExecQuery' failed for query '%ls'.


A Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) query has failed. The WMI repository may be corrupted or it works incorrectly.


WMI is Windows Management Instrumentation, Acronis uses its functionality on Windows machines to get information about disks, system and services.

The error indicates that Acronis Agent had attempted a query via WMI tools and WMI tools failed to process it.

This is often caused by WMI repository corruption in the Windows OS.


Diagnosis of WMI can be performed with a special Windows utility:
