Subject: Re: [OMPI users] mpirun with WMI on Windows 7

Hi Charles,

You don't need to install anything, but just a few security setting has
to be correctly configured. Here are two links might be helpful (will be
added into README.WINDOWS too):

On the other hand, in order to check if WMI is working between the
nodes, you can try with command:

     C:\>wmic /node: /user:username process call create

the ip has to be the remote computer ip address, and the user name is
which you use on remote computer. This command line will simply launch a
non-interactive notepad (no GUI) on remote node using WMI, if it is
successful, you should be able to see a notepad process in Task Manager
or Process Viewer, and that also means mpirun will work through WMI.

Could you check with the above command, and possibly tell me the return
value, so that I can help you to make it work.
