    WMIC can be used for scripting if you want to parse the text returned, but it's
    better for interactive use from the command prompt. WMIC only exposes some of
    the WMI objects, but all WMI objects can be accessed from scripting languages.

    I don't think there is a Win32_LogicalDrive, but maybe you mean
    Win32_LogicalDisk? Here is the documentation and an example in VBScript:

    WMIC CALL allows execution of the methods available to a class. Can the
    GETSECURITYDESCRIPTOR method method of win32_logicalsharesecuritysetting be
    called using WMIC? Below is the result when I try - it isn't clear how to
    pass parameters to the method from the documentation.

    Anyone have experience with this?


    wmic:root\cli>path win32_logicalsharesecuritysetting
    Caption ControlFlags Description
    Name SettingID
    Security settings of print$ 32772 Security settings of print$
    Security settings of HPOffice 32772 Security settings of HPOffice
    Security settings of downloads 32772 Security settings of
    downloads downloads
    Security settings of recordings 32772 Security settings of
    recordings recordings
    Security settings of stuff (E) 32772 Security settings of stuff
    (E) stuff (E)

    wmic:root\cli>path win32_logicalsharesecuritysetting call /?

    Method execution operations.

    CALL <method name> [<actual paramlist>]
    NOTE: <actual paramlist> ::= <actual param> | <actual param>, <actual

    The following verb(s)/method(s) are available:
