Create new attribute using WMI (RTM)

There's a bug in RTM version with creating attribute using WMI.  You'll receive an error similar to the following:

"Verification failed with [1] errors:

........

Error 1:

: Failed to verify Discovery

........

This is an issue with the attribute creation UI.

Workaround:

Export the management pack.  Add the reference to Windows Library in the <references> section at the top.

Example:

<<<Reference Alias="Windows"

<<ID>Microsoft.Windows.Library</ID>

<<Version>6.0.5000.0</Version>

<<PublicKeyToken>31bf3856ad364e35</PublicKeyToken>

<<</Reference>

Try XML Notepad to do this.  It breaks out the XML for readability.

Then, import the edited XML (management pack) and create the WMI attribute.
