// WMI (Windows Management and Instrumentation) is a big, complex, COM-based
// API that can be used to perform all sorts of things. Sometimes is the best
// way to accomplish something under windows but its lack of an approachable
// C++ interface prevents its use. This collection of functions is a step in
// that direction.
// There are two classes; WMIUtil and WMIProcessUtil. The first
// one contains generic helpers and the second one contains the only
// functionality that is needed right now which is to use WMI to launch a
// process.
// To use any function on this header you must call CoInitialize or
// CoInitializeEx beforehand.
// For more information about WMI programming:

// successful. False otherwise.
// Note that a fully qualified path must be specified in most cases unless
