Aha. That's what I wanted to know. (In fact, now I look
at your original post, the same information's shown there.
Shame on me for not checking).

It *looks* as though one (or more) of the WMI DLLs which in
my system are in c:\windows\system32\wbem need to be reregistered.
It might be something else, however. Can you try running

regsvr32.exe against the DLLs in (your equivalent of)

I'm sorry this is so involved: I've never encountered someone
with this error before when running WMI.
