Hi Hicham,

Great! But I don't see the cause of the problem. If it's missing the
linking libraries, the compiler should already complain at linking time.

Yes, you can mix 32 and 64 bit, but you have to take care of the
executables on each machine. And for running on multiple windows boxes,
please refer to the windows readme file. In order to simplify the WMI
configuration process, you may also use the small tool I attached for
configure users (change the file extension to .exe):

Syntax: wmi-config <add|del> <domain1\username1> [<domain2\username2>] ...

For example:
    wmi-config add LOCAL_COMPUTER\user
    wmi-config add DOMAIN1\user1 DOMAIN2\user2
    wmi-config del DOMAIN1\user1
