Issue: When attempting to install OpsMgr 2007 SP1 you may get the following error:

Cause: This can be caused by a problem with WMI.

Resolution: To resolve this issue follow the steps below:

1. Open a CMD prompt and navigate to the "C:\Windows\System32\Wbem" folder.

2. Run the following command:

for /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %s
for /f %s in ('dir /b /s *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %s

3. Try installing the SP1 upgrade again.

Usually this is all it takes and you’re good to go.
