How to get the data from msinfo32 with wmic commands

2018-03-23
I was recently looking to gather the same data that msinfo32 reports and I found a couple wmic commands that provided me with what I needed.

The first is a basic wmic command eg wmic service get /format:list. This will output the services on Windows.
Run wmic /? to see a list of other information you can gather.
Other formatting options /format:table and /format:csv

The second wmic command uses the CIM WMI Provider. eg wmic path CIM_LogicialDisk get /value. This outputs the logical disks that Windows detects.
To find a list of possible options see the MSDN docs https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa386541.aspx
