I'm getting a "No Instance(s) Available" error with the wmic command. The command I'm running (from an elevated/administrator cmd.exe window) is:
G:\>wmic datafile where name="file.txt" get creationdate No Instance(s) Available
The file "file.txt" does exist.
I have found some mention of this problem in other SU questions/answers like the answer here:
but I have not found any mention of how to fix (or even troubleshoot) this problem.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
When I run "wmic datafile /?" I get usage syntax help:
G:\>wmic datafile /? DATAFILE - DataFile Management. HINT: BNF for Alias usage. (<alias> [WMIObject] | <alias> [<path where>] | [<alias>] <path where>) [<verb clause>].
