I am a systems engineer on the Microsoft Windows Team. This team is responsible for OS and Hardware Support. My main tool that I use to administrate boxes is PowerShell. While I have experience in a wide range of products I am focused on Windows Server, Virtualization, and automation and building tools with PowerShell.

comment How can I retrieve the data types of properties when querying WMI via Winrm
While I understand performance reasons wouldn't the process of making a connection to a single box multiple times decrease performance? Within PowerShell you can setup sessions to these boxes, making the connection once and then when needing to get more from the box you can use the same connection you already set up. I would think this would greatly increase your performance even while using PowerShell. I would understand a little better if you were only reaching out to a box once. PowerShell in v4 even allows the remote box to reboot and your session will still be active after the reboot.

If your trying to avoid PowerShell then I think your going to have to populate your variable types yourself. I understand PowerShell can be resource intensive sometimes but you can also use it to export your wmi call to CLIXML and get your var types that way. If you don't mind me asking why are you trying to avoid the PowerShell stack?
