WMI supports a query language called the WMI Query Language (WQL). WQL is a subset of structured query language (SQL) that is used by most relational database management systems. An event filter query is a WQL query that is used when processing WMI events.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 21
Source: Microsoft-Windows-WMI
Version: 6.1
Symbolic Name: WBEM_MC_INVALID_EVENT_PROVIDER_QUERY
Message: Event provider %1 attempted to register a syntactically invalid query "%2". The query will be ignored. The query can be corrected by examining the WMI repository with CIM studio and updating the permanent subscriptions for the listed provider and query. If the permanent suscription is created with MOF file coming with an installed product, the application vendor must be contacted to correct the faulty registration.

Resolve

Update permanent event subscriptions

To correct the query, examine the event registration by using the WMI Event Registration tool included with CIM Studio and updating the permanent subscriptions for the listed provider and query. If the permanent subscription was created by a MOF file included with an installed product, you must contact the application vendor to correct the faulty registration.

Verify

Send events through the Event Provider that satisfies the Event Filter query in question and to verify that they were delivered successfully.
