I'm trying to setup a Services on a Win2008 64 bit server. This services depends on the WMI Driver Extensions, but I can't find where to install it from or download it to install.

Does anyone have any ideas where I could find the resources to do this?

I don't think they exist on server 2008 Virtual machine time, maybe?

Thanks yasth, you are correct. FOr some reason they were installed on a 32bit 2008 server but could not get them on a 64bit server. It turns out the issue the services would not start was because the C++ runtime was not available, not because of the WMI driver dependency. – Bigtoe Jul 1 '10 at 14:34
