AddRemovePrograms column referenced in place of Win32Reg_AddRemovePrograms On page 165, step 5 of the lab instructions reads: "Set colItems equal to what comes back from issuing the WQL statement “Select * from AddRemovePrograms” as you use the execQuery method. Your code will look like the following: Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery(“SELECT * FROM AddRemovePrograms”)" It should read: "Set colItems equal to what comes back from issuing the WQL statement “Select * from Win32Reg_AddRemovePrograms” as you use the execQuery method. Your code will look like the following: Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery(“SELECT * FROM Win32Reg_AddRemovePrograms”)" Microsoft Press is committed to providing informative and accurate books.
